THIS, THIS, and THIS. Even our other quote top offensive players, what puts them where they are is an elite shot (Neal) or status (Iggy) or hard work (Duper) or purest physical forechecker with some skill (Kunitz). None of them have any real creativity of which to speak.

IMO, the Pens right now really have only five quote creative players: Sid, Geno, JJ, Bennett, and Letang.
