    This looks like a fantastic deal! Neal for Gogo straight up would have been a great trade. Getting a young Dman who was a former first-round pick thrown in is amazing.

    Great deal. I keep waiting to hear what else the Pens included...

    Neal is a rugged (although he doesn't fight) winger with pretty good size who put up 55 points last season. Put him next to a healthy Sid and he could be really productive. He's only 23. Man, I wish Sid were healthy right now so they could get clickin' before the playoffs.

    Gogo, a Defenseman, had 1 more point (and a +20 rating) than Neal, a forward. I liked Gogo so, Neal better be a playa! According to Stars posts on TSN, they think they got screwed. They said there must be more to the deal?

    I wonder if Ray is paving the way to get Richards? But who do the Pens have left to trade? ...a prospect and a conditional pick for a rental?

    The deal is now posted on the Pens official site. Nothing else going the other way!

    "Penguins Acquire James Neal and Matt Niskanen From Dallas In Exchange For Alex Goligoski
    Monday, 02.21.2011 / 4:17 PM / News
    Pittsburgh Penguins
    The Pittsburgh Penguins have acquired forward James Neal and defenseman Matt Niskanen from the Dallas Stars in exchange for defenseman Alex Goligoski, it was announced by executive vice president and general manager Ray Shero.

    Neal, 23, is in his third NHL season. The 6-foot-2, 208-pound left winger ranked third on the Stars this season with 21 goals and fifth with 39 points.

    A native of Whitby, Ontario, Neal established career highs offensively last season with 27 goals, 28 assists and 55 points in 78 games. In 214 NHL games the 2005 second-round pick (33rd overall) has 72 goals and 131 points. He is a three-time 20-goal scorer.

    Neal spent four seasons with the Plymouth Whalers (Ontario Hockey League), tallying 68 goals and 173 points in 187 games.

    Niskanen, 24, is in his fourth NHL season. The 6-foot, 200-pound defenseman has posted six assists in 45 games this season. Niskanen’s best season came in 2008-09 when he led all Dallas defenders in scoring with 35 points (6G-29A).

    The Virginia, Minnesota native was Dallas’ first-round selection (28th overall) in 2005. In 277 career games with the Stars, Niskanen tallied 16 goals and 82 points. Niskanen has three assists in 16 career postseason appearances.

    Prior to joining the Stars, Niskanen spent two seasons at the University of Minnesota-Duluth where he scored 45 points (10G-35A) in 77 career contests."

    WOW



    Fantastixc Deal.

    I was just on the phone telling NKy that I would make the Neal for goGo deal in a heartbeat and that because I was so excited thinking about it it wouldn't happen.

    It happened. Kid is the same age as Crosby and a Top line winger with 30-40 goal scoring potential next to Sid or Geno. We have him under contract for next season and then he's an RFA which is good for us

    On top of it we got Niskanen who is a good young Defenseman himself with some offensive upside. I don't know HOW Ray got him thrown into the deal. That just made this a flat out robbery IMO.

    Only reason I can think here is that hes a rental, strictly a rental for some sort of questionable Crosby-less playoff push/vet experience?

    He's an FA after this season and was making $5 million per. I can't see us giving up much for him or wanting to
