    not trying to defend kessel, but it's hard to be a + player on a horrible team like the leafs.

    you're missing my point.  Bruins8 is the biggest fan boy of Kessel on this board and yet comes here and downplays James Neil.

    Pitt deals a young(er) defenseman with some serious scoring ability and defensive awareness.  Dallas deals a young(er) forward with some scoring ability.  Niskanen is thrown in.

    Seems like about as even of a deal as we'll see.

    Goligoski has very good offensive potential but is average at best defensively. His ceiling is likely a 2nd pairing Dman running the first PP unit. Barring Neal and/or Niskanen tanking, this move favors Pittsburgh.

    I think many have said it.He was certainly on his way to that status before crying his way out of Boston.

    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 I need a beer

    Actually, Niskanen has been wildly inconsistent and the Stars have been trying to get rid of him for a while. Still, this trade does not make much sense from a Dallas perspective. Both Neal and Niskanen are young and signed at a moderate price for next year....perhaps there is someting behind the scenes we are not privy to.

     how good will this trade will look if and when crosby comes back. neal is a really good finisher around the net and Pittsburgh was definitely dealing from a strength they are loaded as far as defence is concerned. that's how they have been able to maintain there spot in the standings along with marc andre fleury. they have martin,michalek,letang,orpik,engelland and either lovejoy or niskanen jesus i wish the bruins had that kind  of problem.
