Guerin Traded to Pittsburgh Penguins

Bill Guerin is leaving the Island.

It was announced Wednesday that the 37-year-old captain would head out for the Steel City. He was traded to the Pittsburgh Penguins for a conditional low-round draft pick.

If the Penguins do not make the Playoffs, the Islanders will recieve a fifth-round draft pick, If the Pens get past the first round, they will send a third-round draft pick to New York.

The veteran right winger has 16 goals and 36 points this year in 61 games. He is in the final year of a $4.5-million contract.

The Penguins are making a huge Playoff push under interim coach Dan Bylsma. After making several trades and signings, Pittsburgh is 6-1-1 under him.

With the trade for Guerin and the Wednesday signing of Craig Adams, the team has acquired two solid wingers and is therefore in a questionable spot regarding the future of Miroslav Satan.
