In this morning's Dreger Report written by Darren Dreger of TSN, he stated that the Pittsburgh Penguins were interested in Dallas Stars left winger James Neal.
Well, Dreger could not have been more right. The news recently broke that Pittsburgh traded offensive defenseman Alex Goligoski to the Stars in exchange for Neal and defenseman Matt Niskanen.
This will have implications for both teams. The Stars are trying to make the posteason after failing to make the cut last season, while the Penguins wanted to add a scoring winger to bolster their offense without Sidney Crosby and Evgeni Malkin.
Let's take a look at the players involved in this trade and see if we can determine which team came out on top.
