That's a big call is all I am saying. Look at his stats throughout his career, and his play-off series, BUT, Foppagirl makes a great point about his utilisation in San Jose.

Just remember guys, people are sitting him on our Stazz / Jones line - and are calling him a top line player now. Comparitively speaking, you have to look at the talent divide of our then top line compared to others.

Example, these two first up groups are on the ice against each other (I'm assuming The Penguins do pick up Semin like the reports are saying):-

Neal - Crosby - Semin
Letang - Martin / Niskanen / Orpik
Fleury

vs.

Mcginn - Stastny - Jones
Johnson - ????? (Hejda/Hunwick/Zanon)
Varlamov

To be the best, you have to beat the best guys - and I see our divide is pretty broad. I mean, Mcginn and Jones both got 37 points last year guys - 37 !!
Just saying, Neal only has 218 points in 314 games. He was a 45~ point player before playing with Malkin.
