I love Ray Shero. He just put of big dent in the long term winger problem.

Also Matt Niskanen spells the end of Ben Lovejoy.

SHERO IS A ****IN LEGEND!!! Neal is the winger for Sid for 10 years to come! Shero, i wanna have your babies, i cant believe you actually got Niskanen as well, because i thought Neal for Gogo straight up was pretty bad for Dallas. Hahahahhaha. Best day in a long time.

Wow! Not even a pick going to Dallas with Goligoski?!?

If these are the final terms of the trade - it's an absolute fleecing.

With more details coming, per TSN, don't be surprised if we're giving something else.

But it looks like a pretty outstanding trade.

I like Goligoski very much, and he's going to do big things in Dallas in the future. Number 1.

But to be able to get a young scorer in return while still adding a young NHL defenseman to the mix...I mean, how can you turn that down? There are challenges ahead vis-a-vis the point on the powerplay that Goligoski vacates, so we'll see what happens there.

Still, I'd wait for more info to come through, because my instinct is that we're giving more than Goligoski.

Neal is the replacement for Malone that we've been waiting for for the past 3 years...

Ray Shero is a mother****ing Highlander. Here he is, born to be king, savior of the universe. . .


That said, people on the trade boards are crapping their pants over this one, seriously underrating Goligoski in this trade.

Neal is going to score 40 goals next year alongside Crosby.

Considering I would have given up Goligoski plus to get him, I consider this a great deal. It means a lot for the offensive future of this team. This year still depends on Crosby's return, but since this isn't a rental, I see no drawback. We now have a potential franchise winger.

WOW huge deal for us!!!!!! I hate to see Goli go but he was gonna get a big raise in a yr and Neal fits the bill. Niskanen is not that bad of a dman, hes not as good as Goli but he maybe just needed a change of scenery.
