It's not like we are playing well as a team 5v5 anyway.
Neal hasn't been doing a lot of the little things he used to. He's not backchecking hard, he's not throwing body checks, he's not winning battles along the boards. And as a result he's not scoring even strength. He can't get the puck in a shooting area if he can't create space for Geno.
