I think there are less questions surrounding Goligoski as a PP quarterback than there are of him as a top-four defenseman, to be honest.

I think he'll be fine but his bread-and-butter is point production and causing trouble for defenders when joining the attack, not stable defensive play imo. He's a lot like John-Michael Liles, so I hope he doesn't follow a similar regression in his overall play. Matt Carle is another legit comparison, though he has upped his defensive game since arriving in Philly. And now with Pronger, he seems to have righted the ship completely.

In the end, I think Goligoski will be fine. But choosing the right partner for him could be key.
