Exactly, Neal has been playing with Elite 90+ point centers his entire career, the guy is a strict role player and if you take away Malkin/Richards he doesn't even hit 30 (which he couldnt even do with Richards). One of the most overrated players in the league.
It wasnt a coincidence that he only put up 1 goal in 20 games the season Malkin and Crosby were both out.
