Newsday: Mr Logan in the Islanders Newsday blog looks at the Guerin trade and has some classy words about him and noted the trade conditions are as follows:
The Islanders get Tampa Bay's fifth round pick from Pittsburgh for Bill Guerin. If the Penguins make the playofss, the Isles get the Penguins' fourth-round pick. If the Pens win a round and Guerin plays at least 50 percent of the games, then, the Isles get Pitt's third-round pick. That's it.

Daily News: Peter Botte has Bill Guerin's Tsn interview and an article on the trade deadline for New York with Sim-Thompson exchange.
NYI Fan Central Comments:
Even considering the market Garth Snow did not do very well here based on how a few second rounders got passed around for plays like Recchi or the players from the Leafs.
Of course the cap prevented a lot of deals.
Best of luck to Bill Guerin moving forward.
Thanks to everyone on the live chat, nice job.
