There's no way Guerin gets a contract with the Flyers. He's only there because Ville Leino is injured and they needed a right wing to fill that role during the preseason. As soon as things get going, he's out.

I don't think you'll find a Flyers fan anywhere who wants Guerin on the team. He blows. And he doesn't look like he gives a rats ass about much on the ice.

Those wingers won us a Cup. What have your's done? I mean, if we really want to start taking jabs...

im beginning to think guerin is there more as "you have to be better than this guy to make the squad" and theyre just being disapointed in our prospects ability to take the challenge. ceding the spot to the veteran as opposed to forcing him out.

If the price is right and if utilized properly I think he can still be a decent contributer to some team.

Basically, he was overused in Pittsburgh. He's no longer a top-6er and probably not even an everyday player. But he's still got a dangerous shot and can bring some leadership.

Just by looking at the Guerin topic in our board, there's still a few out there who think he can be a good player apparently.

Why would they bring him in for ***** and giggles? There's tons of guys in camp, they wouldn't bring him in just to waste their time because Ville Leino isn't healthy, there's plenty of other guys who they can look at. He's been being featured, promoted, and was on the local "Meet the Flyers" telecast. He's going to be on the team, the issue is how much and who he's going to play with.

i found that extremely odd.... its almost like he was a big FA aquisition or something with the publicity he has gotten. I would have figured Zherdev would be more hyped than him. and even TSN's replay of the first preseason game was all about guerin.... its just strange.

now guerin is an awesome guy and good with the media so maybe thats why, but its basically saying to the guy... "hey we are signing you anyway so don't bother trying in these preseason games." which is the completely wrong thing to do, especially with a 40 year old.

Well, you also don't want him killing himself just trying to make the team, only to run out of gas when the games actually matter.

Zherdev? Nah. First off, he wasn't in town until like the day before training camp (after they shot the show). And...he's Russian. Well, actually Ukraine, but not many people are aware Oskars Bartulis is from Latvia. Anyways we ain't used to Russians here in Philadelphia. There's still some people here who think a Russian Flyer is like...a convicted felon becoming the starting quarterback for the Eagles. Like that would ever happen - the thought is preposterous to dream up.

Zherdev has even already been criticized by supposed "professional" writers for preferring to use a translator. Like the guy is Ivan Drago or something.

Second laziest troll ever you mean. Your comment on how sweet the wall sounds definitely takes first place.

Your correct, he doesnt look like he cares much. Why is that? Because he already has a deal in place. He will turn it up once the season starts! Look at all the other option that were out there and the flyers choose the worst one imo.

You're confusing "troll" with "joke" . My comment wasn't designed to bait anyone into an argument. His JVR comment wasn't out of nowhere, it reaches back to a prior discussion.
