Lmao, so I was typing this on another forum I frequent while the Pens-Nucks game was starting:
Also who wants to bet Neal scores at a PPG pace for the first 20 games, giving Pens nation hope while reinvigorating cries that the trade was so "lopsided" despite no one realizing Alex Goligoski is putting up the same numbers in Dallas. Then after 20 games Neal then falls off the map, going 10+ games without a point and being invisible the rest of the year. I'd put money on it, he's only been a hot starter for the past 3 years or so.
Literally a minute later Luongo gives up a horrible goal to none other than James Neal. I'm ****ing psychic.
Unholy Prince, on the topic of Neal I had a similar thought earlier. It almost makes me wish I were in a fantasy league without so many Stars fans. He is a prime candidate to nab, ride his early scoring for a month and a half and then when he looks like he's going to score 90 points trade him for a hell of a player at a position of need. It would just take a couple east coast fans in there who scoreboard watched his last two seasons to make it seriously worth it.
Pretty hilarious watching the Rangers - Kings match with all those 'Richards to Brad Richardson. Taken away by Brad Richards. Back to Richards...'. At least the Ducks lost. I rather see Selšnne & Koivu play at next year's WC in Finland than in the POs for the Ducks
