Those people likely saw a game or two and based their entire opinion about him off that.
Being a Stars fan and seeing Neal play both in Dallas and later in Pittsburgh, I do believe that he is a product of Malkin, but it's not a matter of Malkin carrying him; they've just had some great chemistry that's allowed them to thrive. Neal is a great player, but without the chemistry between the two of them he would just be a good player.
