I agree that Guerin isn't likely a good comparable, but neither is Hossa. Not only is Hossa a much better player than Whitney, he was a lot younger and there was always the possibility of him re-signing. Whitney is 37 and will be a solid pickup for any team, but he's not going to be in anybody's long term plans at that age. He's a very underrated player, but he's not on the same tier as a player like Hossa either.

I think a second rounder and a decent prospect gets it done, but he will probably be a hot commodity at the deadline so I wouldn't be surprised if he netted a late first rounder from a contender.
