oh boy... cause Neal was doing so well in Pittsburgh right? Gogo has been the better player so far in the trade, it could change though.

Goligoski - a defenseman - more than doubled Neal's point production after the trade.

You're right. What a terrible trade.

Without Richards next season, Neal's trade value would plummet horribly. He never had any chemistry with Riberio. We got a great young PMD for him before his stock dropped IMO.

I really dont think neal ever had any real chemistry with anyone. He was almost always an independent contractor out there.

Not that I agree entirely but something to consider is that chemistry aside, playing with good players can obviously boost statistics (especially assists).

My personal opinion as to why Neal was shipped out is because Nieuwendyk didn't think he was a true winning player. I'm sure he'll do fine in Pittsburgh, and may even win a Cup in short order, but I just never got the sense that he has it. That in itself is not a problem but it can be if the player thinks they do.
