Obviously an outsider looking in.

Malkin's numbers (assists) are also a bit inflated due to Neal's ability to finish. They're both helping each other. Neal's value is of an untouchable right now, but is it clear cut to say Ryan would have 40 goals or more if he were playing with Malkin? Not really. We just don't know. Ryan is great, but still hasn't scored 40 in a year yet, even with his great supporting cast too.
