Goligoski's offense is going to be missed, there is no way to ignore that. But that is still far from a bad defense. We may have dropped a couple of rankings in defense in the East due to Goligoski's offense now gone, but we are without a doubt still in the top 10 defenses in the East.
I actually believe this trade will look even more lopsided as the years transpire in Pittsburgh's favor. Defensively we shouldn't drop at all as in that capacity Goose wasn't anything to write home about. And his offensive production will be cancelled out and superseded by the new arrivals and in particular Neal.
So offensively we upgraded and defensively we really aren't any worse for the wear.
