    What the hell was Dallas thinking? For Goligoski? Great trade by Shero. Crosby is going to love having this guy on his wing, crashing the net.

    Unless they have a real quality defenseman in the works, Goligoski is a big loss.  As good an acquisition as Neal is, its' a big hole on D.

    Ah...Did I say he was?  He's only 25 and has 31 pts. and a +20.  Tough to replace as we know all too well around here.  While they have Letang and Martin already as offensive D guys, maybe they have a solid D guy in mind.  They better!

    Cam,

    Pitt has a very solid top 4.  Mich/Martin/Orpik/Letang  And Nis to one of the 6th dmen and they are find on the back end. 

    Neal is gonna fit in perfect with Sid. 

    Might be the biggest one way trade since John Kordic for Russ Courtnal

    Wheeler was our top +/- guy a couple years ago. Big deal. Letang/Orpik are much better.

    Pitt has major holes up front. Their D is solid, if not unspectacular. They made some nice pickups in the off season with Michalek and Martin for their defense and Letang moves the puck well. Crosby has been aching for help on the wings for years and this will help immensely. Chris Kunitz is also coming back this week.

    They fleeced Dallas in this deal.

    I'm no homer but the Pens have shown incredible resiliency this season with all of their injuries. (And despite the accolades I still think Cooke should be out of the league but that's another story.)

    fair trade imo. Pittsburg needed to supplement the loss of Malkin and the Stars needed a D that can play on the PP

    Please keep in mind the state of the Dallas organization as it stands today..Its a mess while they await a potential owner to appear..  They are being run basically by the bank..Any signings, trades involving players, cash , etc has to go to the bank for approval..  This is  not so much a hockey deal as it is a financial deal to alieviate payroll to attract new ownership...

    Will Neal sit on Crosby's left or right in the press box while Sid waits for the fog to lift and get back on the ice?

    Excellent trade Pitts. Goligoski, while good, is redundant on the Pens defence who have Martin and Letang do what he does but are much better at it. Niskanen is a solid third pairing and Neal is an gifted scorer. Everyone who saw the Pens v Chicago game yesterday knows how desperate they are for scoring right now.

    ^This!

    Do we have to go over again who was waiting in Pittsburgh for Shero when he took over as GM ? Shero is a good GM and took advantage an organization in limbo I'm not impressed at all.

    Niskanen had 35 pts a few yrs back and is not a bad dman at all.  Had Niskanen gone for Gol I would have thought it was pretty even.  The fact they added a young/fiesty Neal who will likely flank Sid and they win this deal in a landslide.  No way I thought they would land Neal.  He is gonna be good. 

    Send Dallas to a Canadian market.  Tired of these weak american teams.  Florida/Dallas/Coyotes all would sell out in Winnipeg/Hamilton/QC

    That's the same amount of points your buddy Kessel has therefore let me put it to you the same way  " 39 pts u guys are acting like hes a good player...hes ok but cmon 39 pts?    "  Difference Kessel is -22 , Kames Neal is at +8.

    This is the dumbest trad of the year, easily

    What is Dallas thinking here???  Goligoski isn't worth Neal on his own, and yet not only did they do it, but they threw in the extra guy as well.  I mean, Pittsburgh essentially just go the equivalent of a corperate buyout here

    Crap, if only everyone knew they were this stupid.  We probably could have got Neal for Fluto and Haggs

    Neal is good, if he plays with crosby his numbers will be better, but Gologoski is a Top 5 power play d-man who's defensive game has improved by leaps and bound the last year and half...Have to give up something to get something.

    kelv,

    good pt.  but I still think the Pens easily win this.  Niskanen is not chopped liver.  He can put up pts as well and can easily fill the role that Gol played.  Neal is a 30 goal scorer without Sid.  What is he with him.  And he is young.
