Btw, Pacioretty has always been considered a better passer than goal scorer. He's paid to produce, which he's doing, and despite his 'wretched' play, and health issues, is producing more ppg than Neal and is actually a plus player. And all without riding the Malkin pony.

Neal's a good player, but under the same circumstances as Pacioretty, he'd be a 50-60 pt player like he was in Dallas. At a similar age and under similar, but less ideal circumstances, Pacioretty got 65pts and 24 in 37 gamed the previous year.
Like he was in Dallas in his first three seasons in the league? Should we use Pacioretty's first three seasons' numbers or are we only allowed to use Neal's?
