Disagree with this as well.
Everyone on this forum is way too high on Neal... the guy had one good year after meddling around in the ~50 point range for several seasons. I see very real downside risk to Neal's point production and if I could bet money, I'd bet the house that his point production goes down this year.
On the other hand, I'm VERY comfortable that Seguin will exceed his point total from last season and I think he may very well be this year's Giroux. Wouldn't shock me at all if he breaks 85+ points (or the equivalent pace since we don't have the full season). He has been absolutely WRECKING FACES overseas. 40 points (including 25 goals) in 29 games. The skating... the hands... the vision... the creativity, he is the total package.
