I think the Isles and Pens could make for good trade partners. The Guerin deal seemed to work out a few years ago. PA is pretty underrated among Isles fans. He takes a lot of heat but the guy produces. Sure, playing with Tavares helps a lot, but IMO that is a good thing. It shows that the guy can compliment if playing wing to a star player. If put with Malkin, Crosby or even Staal, he should put up some solid points.

I'd expect a 2nd rounder or a defensive prospect in that range for PAP.

Note: I think the most interesting thing that could come out of trading PAP would be seeing who the Isles choose to replace him. I'd expect either Ullstrom or Rakhshani to take his place and get a pretty solid opportunity to prove themselves to the coaching staff. I really like both players, but I think Rhett could be a diamond in the rough. Love the kid's heart and fiestiness.
