Video games would reject this trade. I wouldn't be pleased if I was a Stars fan.

How did the Pens pull this one off? :unsure:


Goligoski is pretty good. I think a lot of people a underrating him on this deal. I still think Shero got the better of it, but I don't believe it's as one-sided as everyone says.

Neal is young and good, but he was producing with top players(Richards and Ericsson) and on the PP so who knows.

I thought Goligoski was supposed to be the Penguins future on defense with Letang?

2.875 according to capgeek and Niskanen is at 1.5.

Isn't Niskanen the one that Crosby fought earlier in the season? Maybe this'll backfire on Pittsburgh...

As much as I hate the Pens, I gotta admit I think this is a great trade for them. Even tho Neal has been struggling lately, he does have over 20 goals so far this season. And he's young and has tons of potential and upside. Pens won out on this trade for sure.

I hate seeing the Pens win a deal. Pens win this deal simply on the basis of trading from depth to get something they didn't have and desperately needed in a scoring winger.l

Hahahahaha. Yeah Dallas got screwed big time imo. Rumor in San Jose was that the Pens were trying to unload Goligoski to them. The Sharks wouldn't bite.

I think Pitt def. won the deal but even with 21 goal Neal has been some what under producing... He has played almost the entire season with Richards and Eriksson and has only managed 39 points in 55 games... They kid can shoot with will help Pittsburgh out but I don't think this trade is as slanted as people are saying... I don't see Niskanen getting any better either... currently a Win for Pitt right now... but if Goligoski becomes what he should even if Neal progressives some it will be relatively an even trade with a chance for the Stars to win out cause of the potential Goligoski has and the so far lacking that Neal has reached it on Dallas top like with one of the biggest stars in the league of Richards.... He was seeing first line PP minutes too... maybe i have my Hate glasses on for the Pens... I do think they won the trade... but not by the margin everyone is thinking...

So a 23 years old James Neal and a 24 year old Matt Niskanen aren't going to get better but a 25 year old Alex Goligoski has the major upside?

Dallas absolutely got fleeced in this deal and it really isn't even close. i see neal getting 1st or second line minutes on Pittsburgh right now and at least 2nd line minutes even when Malkin and Crosby are playing and he will for sure be getting 1st or 2nd PP time as well.

We're going to have to keep our eye on how this one turns out. Looks like a TERRIBLE deal for Dallas right now.

What I don't understand about the Neal trade is why him? I would understand if they were unloading Richards, he's making a ton of money and is a UFA after this year. I mean, if they are rebuilding why trade a 23 year old sniper that's relatively cheap? He'll be a 30 goal scorer or better in the near future. Its a very bizarre trade. Cross the Stars off the list of contenders in the West.

I'm not sure why the Penguins would be trying to "unload" Goligoski, moving him was more out of the need to get a scoring winger.
