Thank God someone sees him play to answer all these
Our problem with the big club is that both wings are flawed, but would be fine in that role if the other
side was better.
You can have a Kunitz (hitter/forechecker) on one side as long as Guerin can create a bit on his own
You can have a Guerin (slow shooter) on one said as long as Kunitz can create on his own
But you can't have two guys occupying both sides, because it then simply comes down to Sid/Geno having to do everything or else the play dies
I just keep looking for that diamond in the rough, and I remember him from exhibition (yes i know it's pre-season) and I remember him having a mean streak and some really good hands an playmaking abilities.
One last question. How is he along the boards in the Offensive zone? Can he shield well or does he get knocked off the puck easily?
