Let's get realistic here, Niskanen is no where near Gogo. Goligoski was a 50 point Dman here. He a legit replacement for Gonchar on the PP. He was the ideal 3rd pairing Dman.
In Dallas, they are satisfied with him being their #1 Dman. At least that's what they were saying at the end of last season, as he had almost a point per game for them and played in all situations.

For the Pens, it's a win win because Niskanen emerged as a sufficient #5 Dman, and Neal is 2nd in the NHL in goals through 20% of the season.

I also don't think Dallas would be too eager to make any trade-backsies.
