And I never said I want a cup every year. It would be nice to get out of the first round.
Neal is a good player, but his point totals are inflated by playing with Malkin. It would be the same way if he played with Crosby. Plenty of 65-70 players would be near a ppg if they played with one of those two.

Letang is a very valuable player , moreso than Neal, but most teams that aren't one of the few bottomfeeders have a guy who is more or less as good as he is, or even better.
