Voted Off the Island ... Finally

The Pittsburgh Penguins have acquired veteran goal scorer Bill Guerin from the New York Islanders for a conditional draft pick in 2009.

Fantasy Outlook:
It was just a matter of time before Guerin was traded. After the whole ordeal of sitting out the game between the Islanders and Sabres because of a pending deal, he was finally traded.

Even though his better days are behind him, Guerin's leadership and goal scoring prowess should only increase playing on the wing of one of the two leading point scorers in the league.

Guerin will provide adequate support to the Penguins top 6 and should be able help a fantasy owner if they already have him on his roster. Guerin has no keeper value as he is an unrestricted free agent at the end of the year and is a question mark as to where he will end up. If he is available on your waiver wire I would advise you to pick him up, but I would suggest you do not trade for him as the owners of this vet will be asking for a steep price, selling him as Crosby's winger.

  1. I see Guerin having more impact in the playoffs but he could finish with around 14 points the rest of the way. I agree though, this is more of a bonus to Guerin owners then anything else.
