See the above, those are Kane's comparitors, not James Neal.
Jets wouldn't do this trade because Wpg needs an elite centre, not a sniper. I also have no doubt that Crosby could make Kane into a 40++ goal scorer; despite Kane's many deficiencies, he is fast, strong and can score...like only 62 other players in NHL history.
This deal doesn't happen, but not because Kane=Neal.
Good luck to you guys.
Before the age 25, the following active players have put up 40 goal seasons: Selanne, Ovechkin, Crosby, Iginla, Jagr, Malkin, Hossa, Parise, Stamkos, Vanek, Carter, Heatley, Hejduk, Kovalchuk, Elias, Nash, E.Staal and Neal. That's it.
See, I can put up lists too.
