See I kind of disagree. I think Benn for Goligoski is a totally fair deal. Dallas' major weakness is on the backend, especially when it comes to puck movers because Niskanen is not coming along as they expected as far as I've seen him. They need someone like Goligoski (and yes I know Vishnevsky is expected up next year but I think Gogo has a much better future than he does anyway). They have so many forwards right now between Neal, Eriksson, Benn, Glennie, Brunnstrom (yes I think they still have some faith in him), plus the rest of the forwards they have in their system. I think they're in a position to deal someone like Benn to get back a solid puck mover and not really lose too much sleep over it.
