Penguins Tradeline Updates

From Yahoo Sports:


2:00 p.m. EST -- Another mission accomplished in Pittsburgh Penguins GM Ray Shero's "Operation: Grow a Pair." Bill Guerin goes from the New York Islanders to the Penguins, and the TSN panel is fawning over it like it's the Guerin of 1998 instead of the old dude with the .088 shooting percentage.

The Penguins have sent a fifth-round pick that become a four if the Penguins make the playoffs and a three if they win a round.

This is an intangible move, just like it would have been if the Washington Capitals had snagged Guerin's services. From a production standpoint, he's got Miroslav Satan's numbers. But he's a much more important player than Satan in what he brings to a locker room and what he brings to the ice beyond the numbers.

Shero has now added Chris Kunitz, Craig Adams and Bill Guerin to this team. Give the man credit: He realized his decisions last summer neutered this locker room, and has reinserted a spine into this franchise. If that puts the Penguins back in the mindset of last season's team, then Pittsburgh's dangerous.
