Nate Guenin

What did everyone think of the former Ranger draft pick's play tonight? He did get 2 assist and made some good hits. I still dont know why we did not signed him. His skating did not look bad.

Meh, he was ok, but he would be a #6-7 defenseman on our team at this moment. In 1-2 years he would have no spot at all.

Don't regret not keeping him.

He's a bottom pairing defenseman at best. You can't feel too bad when management gives up on those players. There's too many.

Was hoping Nate would eventually make the team, but obviously that didn't happen. I hope he gets a fair shot in Philthy!

Purinton doesn't have an NHL contract. I'm sure they would have offered Guenin an AHL contract.

Nate did look good...

but not sure where he'd fit in on the Rangers, and aside from last night, I haven't seen him play at all. He is, or is going to be, 25 years old, which is a bit older than many of the Rangers' up and comers.

Guenin was a kind of favorite of mine as a prospect. I understand why they didn't sign him. There was a big glut of players coming along at the same time and the fact that we moved out Giroux, Wiseman and a number of others had to do with that. Needs to be kept in mind about Guenin--he's stepping in at the end of the season for a team that's short on players and with one of the worst records in the league. I thought he played well but what we're looking at is probably a Jason Strudwick kind of player. Nate did throw some nice hits but his skating and mobility is probably going to have to improve a little more for him to make it. The two assists he got were gifts really--Eager did all the work on the one and the other deflecting off of Hollweg--it's not like Nate made a real offensive play on either. Still something tells me we're going to see more of this guy.

I like Guenin, but I thought his skating was an issue. Not so much straighht away, but side to side, an agility thing. He was strong in front of his net in college and for that reason I wanted us to sign him. It is something that was lacking in our organization.

Looked like a big, physical dman. Philly has a pretty bright future to be honest

He didn't look physical at all, actually. Something that surprised me. He actually looked quite timid out there.

Im pretty sure the Rangers offered Guenin an AHL contract, but he turned it down in favor of signing a two way with the Flyers

I saw him with maybe 1 mediocre hit. A far cry from what he was in college, anyway. Maybe he regains that with a few more games up, but he certainly did not have the edge he had in college.

he struck me as a pretty tyical flyer: big with atleast the potential to be physical (I agree with Jon that he wasn't a considerable force last night.) I feel the Flyers, as an organization, would be more likely to overlook his skating difficulties than the rangers would.

I can't really blame him for playing it safe. I thought he was awful during his first call-up and I'm actually amazed he was brought up again. He played well (safe) last night and it paid off with a couple points and not getting out of position very often.

I also can't blame the Rangers for letting him go. He's nothing special.

At the end of the day, there just did not seem like enough room for him. With Staal, Baranaka, Sauer, Toots and even Girardi or Liffiton, his spot on the organizational depth chart was low.

He's actually pretty low on the Flyers depth chart as well, there's a few injuries right now and when players like Gauthier are hurt, they prefer to bring him up as a physical presence instead of an offensive minded guy like Jussi Timonen.
