My take: Like most, I think the Penguins made out nicely in this deal. In Neal, they get a speedy, young, top-six winger who can score goals. Penguins GM Ray Shero has been seeking just such a player to place alongside either of his superstar centers, Sidney Crosby or Evgeni Malkin. Neal, 23, should be a great fit.
