I'll preface this by saying there's no way that Pittsburgh should make the trade in the OP, due to the addition of a top D prospect and the respective ages/development stages of the teams: it's ridiculous to think Neal is a far superior player to Kane, whose abilities Kane might live up to. Neal had arguably the second best center in the game setting him up last year and had shown nowhere near the same offensive stats prior to playing in Pittsburgh. Kane had Wellwood-Antropov, a combination that could barely locate the offensive zone much less keep up with Kane. One of these players is a pure finisher and the other has the ability to create opportunities completely by themselves. Kane with Crosby would score 40 easily. Neal with Wellwood-Antropov would score 20-25.
