I chalk that up to intensity. And, to be fair, we've had players make equally "dirty" plays as well. The stuff Neal does is in another stratosphere. There's a difference between getting under a player's skin, and making a concerted effort to cheapshot a defenseless player a la Neal on Marchand and Couturier.
