Neal always had loads of potential. Even without Malkin he would have been a 65+ player this year at least. Malkin wasnt single handedly responsible for a 26 point increase-- Neal was just a better all around player this year than he's ever been.
I'm not talking about guys like that who are still developing. I'm more talking about guys like Dupuis or Zubrus (when he was with Ovechkin).
In the case of Nash, I'd expect about 80 points alongside Giroux. He's capable of about 70 on his own, so I think 80 is definitely a reasonable guess.
