Look, I'm not advocating Guerin. I just wouldn't be surprised.
Not hard to do when you jump over the ice whenever you feel like it, get as many minutes as your carcass can handle on the powerplay and dictate who your linemates are. The 2nd tour for the mercenary was an unmitigated disaser that could not end fast enough. Heck, even Captain Nyquil put up decent points when he had the run of the place. But that's before he sucked the blood out of the team with his bombastic personality.

But the best part, for both, was the intangibles on display.
