It's crazy how many Pens fans don't see the importance of a playmaking center for a goal scoring winger like Seto. Neal was outscored by Kovalev the year he was traded here.
The funny thing is that nothing happened to his stats. They remained virtually the same.

Sort of undermines the idea that he would automatically score more on a higher scoring team with an elite center.

Just to make things clear, I wouldn't do this trade from Pittsburgh's perspective.

I just wanted to point out that endless bashing of Setoguchi doesn't make a prospect with high potential worth more.
So you agree with the idea that the Pens shouldn't trade Despres for Setoguchi, but you think the value is there?
