Alex Gologoski Gone!!!!

Traded to Dallas for James Neil (Winger 21 G 39 Pts thru 59 Games and a defensemen Matt Niskanen (0 goal 6 pts).

Even though I called this one from the beginning of the season I must admit that I am sad to see him go. Not that I think we needed him but Gogo was a pen thru and thru. I liked him and Dallas is getting a quality guy. Pens jsut didn't need another offensive defensmen and with the emergency of Simon Despre in training camp the writing was on the wall there.
To be honest I have never even heard of Matt Neal but his stat line is nice and he is def. a scoring winger. Not a super stud but a guy that can put it in the net. I just hope he is not a rent-a-winger. More research is required on this one.

I have no idea who Matt Neal is, but James Neil is a Young, solid winger who will play great along side Sid. Plus we got a decent defensive defenceman. Shero gets an A+ for this move.

Re: Alex Gologoski Gone!!!!

Funny how things work out--Niskanen is the guy Sid fought in Dallas earlier this year.

Our new Dman gets beat up by Sidney Crosby

We’re not going to apologize for caring. We’re not.

Just from the looks of things in the few minutes I've spent looking at this, Shero must have something really nasty over the head of the Stars GM.

Dallas should feel pretty good. Last time they got an offensive defenseman from Pittsburgh, that player went on to have a pretty good career for them. Zarley Zalapski.

And remember, Zalapski couldn't hit the side of a barn when he ran the Pens PP either.

Holy Cheese and Crackers!

Re: Alex Gologoski Gone!!!!

What about Zubov? The Pens trade him to the Stars as well. He had a good career too.

Where have you been?

You're right. My bad. Brain in a little bit of a fog. Alex went to Dallas. He was horrible on the Pens PP. Even with Lemieux, Jagr and Francis in front of him.

Holy Cheese and Crackers!

Re: Alex Gologoski Gone!!!!

I like it. Sounds like he (Neil) is under contract through next year. You never know, but this looks real good on paper.

Why do they call it common sense when it is so rare.

Best of luck to Gogo in Dallas. He was really making strides but I think that Depres will be ready next season possibly and plus they got Niskanen in the deal.
