You obviously didn't because you're still judging Goligoski's performance when he was playing in that lineup. Like I said before, when Goligoski took over for Sarge, he was looking incredible. 7 points in 11 games, and playing stellar defense. He was getting good, hard, low shots off from the point, and they were getting through a ton of traffic. When I said he "proved" he can handle it, I was just looking at how he handled the job. I don't need statistics to tell me how he did.
And losing Geno would constitute a drop. That puck goes through Geno and Sarge, with Geno taking a good majority of those shots. If Geno isn't there, teams can cheat over to Goligoski. The same way if there isn't a legitimate threat over on the left boards, teams can cheat over that way too, which they have been doing all year.
You're missing the point completely. Goligoski's even strength play was great until he got injured. He even looked solid playing on the powerplay with Gonchar. But when Gonchar went down and Goligoski was called upon to run the powerplay it was terrible, so how can you say that he showed that he was ready to lead the powerplay when he didn't look very good on it and it struggled mightily?
