Why trade a 40-goal guy that is with Malkin AND one of our top D prospects for a guy that is a 25-goal, 60-point type of guy and could possibly if everything goes right hit 40 with Malkin? Makes absolute no sense. I wouldn't trade Neal for Kane straight up, let alone adding a second round pick for him.

You make no sense and are embarrassing yourself IMO.
Neal's only year that was better than Kanes last season was after getting traded to Pittsburgh.

Kane got 30 goals last year with Alex Burmistrov as his center and kyle wellwood opposite, at age 20.

Before Neal got traded he had never gotten thirty goals or over 55 points which Kane did at 20. Neal was 23 when traded.

After getting to play with Malkin, the Hart trophy winner, he breaks out with a big season.

You need to factor in teams systems. Do you really think its unreasonable to think Kane would put up Neal numbers in Pitt, when he has already beat Neals best Dallas numbers?
