Going against the grain, I'll say this is a very fair deal. Of course, I'm one of the few around here that thinks Goligoski can be an all-star caliber defender. The rate at which he's learning the defensive game at the NHL level is outstanding. He's going to be much better than a lot of you think.

Neal is exactly what this roster needed. Niskanen isn't very good at anything, but he had a pretty good rookie season and has decent tools, so perhaps a change of scenery will do him some good. He's pretty much just a bonus, as I think Neal for Goligoski is as fair as it gets.
