Does James Neal go to Sochi?

Postby The Snapshot on Wed Feb 05, 2014 7:29 pm

Apparently Stamkos is a no go for Sochi. Does James Neal get the nod as one of the true wingers awaiting a call, or does (gag) Claude or maybe Eric Staal get the call?

If James Neal goes to Sochi, he'll be wearing a Malkin sweater and dogging the Canadian team the entire time!

I can't see Giroux, I just can't. He was a mental mess at the start of the year, and Sid hates him (likely Kunitz too). That is well documented.

It likely going to be St. Louis, but a line of Neal-Crosby-Kunitz would be sick.

I can't remember the last time where there was a passenger that worked on Crosby's line. I think the results with Neal on that line would be significantly worse than with Dupuis on it.

St. Louis. Neal and a dozen others should still be going over Nash though.

I want nothing to do with Neal going to Sochi. After seeing what that place is like, i just hope everyone gets back alright.

St. Louis should be like 3rd or 4th on the list to replace Stamkos.

There is no way, St. Louis isnt picked. Stevie Y would be putting his relationship with his star player to the test if he didnt pick him again. I think St. Louis is a better player than Neal anyways.

Based on the fact that he has the most goals out of himself, Giroux, Neal, and Staal.

And also based on the fact that he's only one point back of the leading scorer in the above mentioned group.

Oh, and also based on the fact that he's continued his scoring pace even without his linemate who is probably the world's best goal scorer.

Yup, based on those facts alone he should clearly be 3rd or 4th on the list to replace Stamkos.
