That group seemed so promising, too. Niskanen, Grossmann, Fistric...
Yep. I'm not trying to argue against the Stars here...Neal has benefited tremendously from playing with an elite center (though he has the special skillset which allows that) and Niskanen needed a change of scenery. Dallas also needed a good offensive defenseman, and Gogs fits the bill.

That said, Pens fans are obviously happy with the deal too. It turned out about as well as we ever could have hoped.
