Just What Guerin Needed

from Chuck Gormley at NHL.com,

(Bill) Guerin says he could not have landed in a better place, saying the fresh start he’s been given in Pittsburgh has been the perfect elixir for an otherwise painful season.

“Without a doubt I feel young again,” Guerin said of his transfer from the Eastern Conference’s last-place team to one battling to return to the playoffs one year after reaching the Stanley Cup Final. “It’s a great feeling to be here and I feel rejuvenated. To be in a playoff race like this is just what I needed.”...

Suddenly, the aches don’t hurt as bad. Guerin, always the optimist, is experiencing the joy of winning meaningful games.

“I love it,” he said. “We’re winning and the line is doing all right, so it can’t be all bad.”

Having played on some of the best lines in hockey, Guerin said the unit of Crosby, Kunitz and himself reminds him of the success he enjoyed in Edmonton while playing on a line with Doug Weight and Ryan Smyth in the late 1990s.
