At least Darche won't mind when he'll end up benched and sent to the AHL, playing yoyo the whole year. I doubt Guerin would put up with that.
Exactly. Darche is the NHLer who will play 10-20 games, most of the time he'll be sitting in the press box (actually, do players still 'sit in the press box'? I know Gomez did last week, but I digress) Having a "whatever, I'm good" guy like Darche allows the Habs to give our young guys some icetime, if we sign Guerin we lose that flexibility. Plus he has gas.
Guerin is done. He was brutal last year, even with time on a line with Sidney Crosby and wasn't good enough to crack the flyers lineup ,so why do we need him? Darche is happy with his role as a guy who stays in the press-box 75% of the season, so I'm happy too.
