Related to the future roster, I was laughing yesterday at Madden saying that Letang is more important to the Penguins than Malkin. Taking out the fact that Malkin is the 2nd best player in the world, the one rebuttal against this thought process would be what are James Neal’s numbers without Malkin in the line up? I remember him going like 1 goal in his first 30 games and now his goal totals are slowing down again when Malkin has been out of the line up. I am sure the Malkin in the line up vs. out of the line up differential is staggering. Of course, you can always say “Well he would just play with Crosby”. Well he isn’t now.

Does anyone know Neal’s number with Malkin in compared to out?
