I said Neal is a pure finisher so I don't see what your problem is with my post. Neal needs Malkin to set him up. Bringing up Tanner Glass and those guys is ridiculous. Glass can barely accept a pass, much less put it in the net - stone hands, no shot.

I don't see how you're arguing that. Do you think Kunitz would put up similar numbers without Crosby? Or how about Pascal Dupuis? If you answered yes to either of those, I can't help you. It's a legitimate concern that Letang wouldn't put up great numbers without two of the best forwards in the game to feed the puck to. The fact that the Pens can't find more decent wingers doesn't imply those two don't inflate their linemates numbers. Goalscorers are just always at a premium.
