Goc may be the most underrated player in the league. He is arguably (based on watching, and statistics) the best center in the league when it comes to being a defensive zone start specialist, and his offensive production is pretty good for a guy who gets so little power play time. The typical Goc shift is one where he takes (and wins) a faceoff in the defensive zone, and where his team has more shots than the opposition despite the fact that the shift starts in his end. It's a pretty remarkable set of stats that you read here: http://thehockeywriters.com/overtime...oc-underrated/

He wouldn't fetch a 1st because he's not that well known of an entity, but I reckon he'd be worth a playoff team's 1st rounder.
