Re: James Neal
Shero will put in dime store wingers to keep Crosby, Malkin, Staal, Fleury and Letang. Those are the keystones of the entire team. Having Neal is a bonus.
....and you can't expect an INJURED 3rd line(1st or 2nd on most any team not containing Crosby and Malkin) center to carry a team through the playoffs! You can't expect one guy to do it all....which Staal tried to do anyway. C'mon, the guy plays everywhere and everything as it is....even strength(5v5 & 4v4), penalty kill, power play, fore check, back check, face-offs....doesn't tend the net, but he probably could!
Do you know how much money is going to be thrown at him when his contract is up? It's going to be huge money....and not because of any one factor either. He's the epitome of an all-in-one forward....POWER forward that is.
You really under estimated the ramifications of the boondoggle you have just perpetrated!
