Seriously? Given top line minutes and the best player in the game feeding you passes (and able to be fed passes) and you think that Guerin provided reasonable production?
Being on the top line of ANY team and scoring that little isn't acceptable. That's why Carcillo isn't acceptable. Hell Carcillo scored 22 points with 7 fewer minutes of icetime per game and less games played.
45 points on the top line? Adjusted for injuries, Edmonton's ****ing top line would have all had more than that and they were the worst team in the league.
I really don't think the following statement is unreasonable: Given playing time with the best player in the world, you should do better than average if you are a quality NHL player.
Guerin didn't because he's not.
