I'd rather not have him anywhere near this team, but that doesn't look like that's going to happen. The Flyers are replacing a young, inexpensive, enery player like Powe with an aging, slowing *******. Brilliant work. Really. ****ing brilliant.
Homer is ****ing up this team with every move he makes. It's so sad.
I think it's quite likely Guerin will get to 20 playing with one of Richards, Carter, or Briere. Could he be below that... sure. However, that's certainly not a huge reach. In fact, he's riding 4 consecutive 20-goal campaigns.
Whether it's smart to bring him in or not gets at a larger issue... which is the whole three scoring line thing. Powe doesn't really fit on a scoring line... neither does Carcillo. That's kind of the reality. I would much prefer having Guerin and seeing if he works with Richards than another year of having Richards lugging around someone like Carcillo... who just couldn't keep up.
