This trade wasn't even close. Dallas goes to having the worst PP with Goligoski, while Neal puts up 40 goals. Yes, he's with Malkin, but still.

I like the optimism and homerism here but really? You have to call a spade a spade.

Maybe if Letang came over instead...
I think Goligoski is definitely below average defensively, and that's my biggest issue with him.

And as a mobile dman it's funny, he and Daley seem to have opposite skills. Put them together and you'd have the perfect PMD. Daley is great at transitioning, carrying the puck into the zone. Then nothing happens in terms of him getting points out of it. Goligoski isn't great at entry or carrying it into the zone on the PP to get things set up(weakness as a PP QB), but in the zone he's good and will get points and score 10-15 goals.
