The official I HATE Bill Guerin thread

Bill Guerin is a tool of the ultimate degree

Example 1

From the New York Times

Lites said that Tom Hicks, the owner of the Stars, tried to set up a meeting over the weekend with several players, but that the plan was stopped by Bill Guerin, a star on the team and also a vice president of the union.

Guerin, Lites said, told management that such discussions would undermine the union and its executive director, Bob Goodenow. Other teams were more successful in meeting with players.

Ed Snider, the owner of the Philadelphia Flyers, talked with several players, according to Don Meehan of Toronto, one of the most powerful agents in the business. Snider did not return a request for comment.

Example #2

From the LA Times

One source said a large contingent of players held a conference call early last week and that Dallas Star forward Bill Guerin, a union vice president and member of its negotiating committee, grew "agitated." Guerin accused other players of caving under owners' pressure to accept a salary cap and said they could have reached a similar deal in September and then hung up.

If the NHL and NHLPA agree to a new CBA in the next 24 hours with a hard cap with no linkage,will Guerin play or will he retire and stop stealing the Stars money?MORON

Seems to me that Billy Boy may have saved Hicks from an unfair labour practice charge.

If I have it my way he will just go away into the big black night and never return. And that is coming from a Stars fan. He can take his 34 goals and attitude and go somewhere else. If he doesn't he had best hire a body guard like Modano has, except he'll need it protect himself rather than the reason Modano has it.

I don't necessarily hate Bill Guerin.

He's just an idiot.
