Billy and the Kid

Bill Guerin has agreed to a 1-year deal with the Penguins. 

Fantasy outlook: Guerin proved he still has some pop as he meshed well with Sidney Crosby down the stretch and during the Pens'  victorious playoff march. In a total of 41 games with Pittsburgh (Regular Season and Playoffs), he scored 12 Goals and 15 Assists for 27 points. 

While his goals have declined in each of the past two seasons, the 38 yo should continue his youth revival flanking Crosby/Malkin for parts of next season. Expect him to finish with around 45 points and have numerous hot and cold streaks throughout the year. Draft Guerin as a reliable vet in the later rounds, but be careful not to overrate him due to a decent playoff. Consider that his "inflated" stat totals with the Penguins still only add up to 54 points over a full season (pro-rated).
