James Neal was a 25 goal scorer until he put up 40 next to Malkin. I couldn't be happier to have Neal on the Pens, but I'm not delusional enough to see him as anything more than a one-dimensional sniper.

If you want to argue that Iginla is not a long-term solution because he's 35 years old, that's one thing. But to argue that Neal and Chris friggin' Kunitz are better players is disgusting.
