I'd make a pitch for Goligoski. He has never been known for playing defense (still better than Streit) but I think this is a guy who is better than what he has shown in Dallas....the burden of being the guy traded for James Neal has always been on his shoulders. That burden will be gone on a fresh start with a new team. From Dallas' perspective trading him makes sense. They have a good young d-core. Oleksiak, Morrow, and Cannaughton all will push for jobs next season. I'd much rather give up an asset and have Goli for 3 more years at 4.6 million than sign Streit at 5.5 million for 3 years.

Sbisa from Anaheim intrigues me as well but his ceiling is a #3 at best. He's supposedly available for the right price.



I think Goli/Sbisa would take PRV straight up....and I'd go there IF (and that's a big IF) MacT finds a legit top 6 LW.
