it's not ridiculous. all three of those guys were paired up with Malkin at some point of the season and didn't produce squat. i think it's ridiculous to assume Neal needs a crutch to score goals. he's not a 40-goal player without Malkin, but he's not a bum. he'd put up about 20-25 goals without Malkin.

it's also ridiculous to assume that Malkin is the only reason players on his line score points. you need to be able to capitalize on your opportunities (which is what Neal has done). Glass, Jeffrey, Boychuk, etc. haven't.
