The Penguins acquired James Neal last season so that he can be that winger the Penguins have been looking to find for Sidney Crosby.
Unfortunately, the two have yet to play with each other because of Crosby's concussion.
That will change when Crosby returns. They will form a lethal line featuring Neal, Crosby, and either Chris Kunitz or Pascal Dupuis.
Crosby can turn even the most marginal player into a scoring threat because of his playmaking abilities. Neal, who was already a solid scorer in Dallas, will now have the most valuable linemate in the NHL and he will definitely start taking advantage of that. Spending time on the power play with No. 87 won't hurt either.
Expect Neal to have a huge season with 30 or more goals.
