Video: Doug Weight and Bill Guerin are journeymen, soul-mates

Huzzah! A new video from our boys at The 2 Man Advantage, who continue to find new and exciting ways to keep the New York Islanders relevant until the youth movement matures.

Nemmy and Scotty (who makes a grand entrance that actually startles their guests) sit down with Islanders forwards Bill Guerin and Doug Weight for the usual tomfoolery. Although, at one point, we were genuinely touched by the "Superbad" like moment of bro-mance between the two players when Guerin tells Weight he's his best friend. All that was missing was a little "boop, boop, boop" on the nose. Enjoy:

By far, our favorite exchange:

Weight: "I'm looking forward to [opening night]. It's against one of my former teams, the Blues. I'd love to blank-can them."

Guerin: "It's another one of my former teams, too. I have a lot of former teams."

Weight: "What are the odds?"

Guerin: "There's a one-in-three chance of me playing one of my old teams."

The 2MA keeps things light, and they're Islanders fanboys, so it's understandable we didn't get the question burning through our minds while watching this: How the hell do two guys with 2,238 regular season games between them keep their sanity as their sunset days are spent playing caretakers of an also-ran while the rookies ripen?

Especially when Guerin and Weight got their starts with the New Jersey Devils and New York Rangers respectively. You'd never get the honest answer on camera or on tape, but it'd be fascinating to go inside the veteran hockey-player mind on that one.

Two additional notes: 2MA favorite Patrick Rissmiller, who the boys once interviewed on the toilet, may not be long for the cap-crunched Rangers according to Larry Brooks.

And last night, Rick DiPietro was torched in a 6-0 loss to the Florida Panthers, which featured a frightening hit from behind by Rostislav Olesz on defenseman Chris Lee of the Islanders. Lee, a few days removed from scoring a game-winner on his birthday, was stretched off but was "conscious and had movement in all extremities."
