He may not be part of the future but to say he's only the third line center because of faceoffs isn't fair. I think Dineen sees what I see in the way he plays.

I never said he was part of our long term future and if the right offer comes along I'd trade him but he would not be the first guy I'd move by a long shot.
Goc at 29 and his style of play should still be what a lot of teams hoping to make a playoff run will be looking for and therefore should offer a fair return. Just saying Goc staying as a Florida Panther at this time with Matthias ready to go in his place is a logical move and is as good a place as any to truly begin the youth movement.
