Kesler would be more beneficial to the Pens than Neal right now.

I'd never do that trade straight up. Neal is a complimentary 25 goal scorer.
Okay, you just are crazily underating Neal then. Neal has been on a 37 goal pace since coming to the Penguins. Playing with Malkin just doesn't give him 12 empty net goals per season. Kesler had a bad year, Neal a good one. It doesn't matter what they did in years past, Neal is more valuable now.

How is Neal a 25 goal scorer? He has been a 40 goal scorer since the start of 11-12 season.
