As all of you have probably already heard, Penguins GM Ray Shero made a trade earlier this afternoon.
Shero continues to amaze me with these deals. I believe the Pens made out again here. These two players are young and talented especially Neal (and they're coming from a Stars team that is doing pretty well this season compared to the last few seasons).
Shero on Neal:
“There aren’t many of these young, power guys in the game,” he said. “Neal on our list is one of the better ones in the game. He’s got some room to grow.
“This is really the first young winger that we’ve gone out and gotten. Chris Kunitz was 27 or 28 when we got him. Neal, being just 23, this is the hockey trade that we’ve been looking for. I think this will be a good fit for him in the long run. … We have a pretty good forward group now.”
