As his time with the Devils drew on, Guerin was becoming my favorite player at that time.
Speed, size, plenty of offensive skill, sound defensively... he was reminding me a little bit of Kirk Muller.
One difference: because of the style the Devils played when Guerin was there, the numbers wasn't near what Muller had
No, Guerin would rack up his goal totals once he left New Jersey, including 41 in '02 while with the Boston Bruins.
Although in the grand scheme of things, 108 goals isn't a bad total in New Jersey.
But in the end, it's about leading a team by example, and Guerin has done that over the years. He finally got rewarded
when he was named captain upon joining the Islanders.
He would retire in 2010 after an attempt to make the Flyers on a PTO came up short. He had played his last games
with Pittsburgh, and would rejoin them after retirement; in 2011, he was named a player development coach, and would
be promoted to assistant GM in 2014.
