Guerin, Recchi & Roberts were all productive initially but all three tailed off and ended up being more or less detrimental towards the end of their tenures here. Sullivan never gelled with Sid or Geno, was brutal defensively and only seemed to produce offense when he was the best player on his line (usually a 3rd/4th line role).

I think Shero & the coaches have had trouble knowing when to say "when" with these older guys, usually waiting until it's too late.
I don't disagree with you entirely but I do think Recchi, Roberts, and Guerin significantly helped our team as a whole. Sullivan was great on the PP but didn't do much else. I definiately wouldn't say we succeeded in spite of them.
