Hopefully he grows out of that "young, dumb, and full of..." stage of his career, and he realizes that he needs to preserve himself a little more. People will disagree, but I honestly think James Neal brings the perfect blend of physicality. He will not be pushed around, he can completely level anyone in the league, but he doesn't feel the need to run around crashing and banging, where he's banged up all the time.

Marcantuoni sounds like he plays a lot like Chris Kunitz. While that's certainly not a bad thing, I think we have seen over the years the toll that kind of game takes on a guy like Kunitz.

I'm real hopeful for the kid. Gotta love someone with those kind of wheels, especially with the speed we already have up front. Those wheels are no good if he's constantly nicked up though.
