Guerin to be Traded from the Isles

TSN reports that the Isles are awaiting Guerin's approval.

So far there's speculation that he's definitely headed to an east coast team, Washington being the most likely destination.

The man has 16g and 20a in 61 games this season.

He's 38 years old.

He's a power forward with a pedigree. Guerin was drafted in 1989, 1st round, 5th overall. In 2001-2002 he scored 41 goals with Boston and has scored 20 or more goals in 11 of his 17 seasons in the NHL.

Could Guerin help the Penguins? Probably...for now.

But let recent history be a lesson to us: Be VERY cautious of signing Isles wingers.

There are all sorts of reasons as to why the Islanders are a few games out of first.

If you made a list of those reasons... and personnel wasn't on it...
