I didn't overlook him at all. Neal has been a great offensive weapon to the Pens this year and his chemistry with Malkin is only second to the Sedins in the league imo, but it would have to be Malkin carrying the Pens to the Stanley Cup. I believe the majority of Neal's goals have come from a Malkin assist, so yeah, he really is the key piece of the puzzle.

Anyway, really hating our coverage or lack thereof of NHL down here. Hopefully will be working in Canada by the end of this year though which should be awesome.
If I was Philly I'd probably want to stay right around 6th instead of having to face Pittsburgh in the first round.
Yup, I would prefer being 6th or facing the Devils in the first round as a Flyers fan. However, unless we can get some decent play in net, we don't have a chance against many teams. Though he did look solid against the Oilers as both goals weren't too bad, and he made some very good saves, so of course we couldn't score haha.
I feel like ECF are going to be Bruins-Pens while WCF is going to be Canucks-Red Wings, but the reason hockey playoffs are the best in sports, you just don't really know. Match-ups, a hot goaltender, injures, can change everything. If it turns out to be Bruins-Pen and Canucks-Red Wings, i see those both going all 7.
Rumors that Flyers are looking to improve but are not going after Nash, which i don't mind, would be too heavy of a price, we have really good young players and don't wanna see them leave. Also read that JS Giguere might be coming to philly, which i wouldn't mind, love him, and could be a very good back-up or starter as he's looked reborn in Colorado, and supposedly the Stars have some interest in Mike Knuble, and i guess depending on what they give up, would that consider Caps sellers at this point now?
Huge comeback win for the Flyers tonight to go back into 4th, down 3-0 and the team began to wake up, then tie it up, give up another goal, tie back up and win in a ... shootout. Shocks me writing that because we are terrible in shootouts, but big 2 points tonight.
