10/25/2014 1:19:00 PM
Description: Predators winger James Neal should have added motivation on Saturday facing the Penguins for the first time since the offseason trade.
Insight: Neal did not have a very good playoff season last spring, which resulted in a trade to Nashville for Patrick Hornqvist and Nick Spalling. Neal and Hornqvist should be motivated to play well on Saturday against their former teams. Neal has five goals in his last four games, including a hat trick on Thursday.
 
10/23/2014 10:53:00 PM

10/2/2014 11:33:00 AM
Description: Nashville winger James Neal will be in for a shock when he looks to his center and it will no longer be Evgeni Malkin or Sidney Crosby.
Insight: Neal's fantasy value has to take a hit depite being on the Predators' top line. We have him with 28 goals and 50 points starting alongside Mike Ribeiro and Colin Wilson. he posted 61 points in 59 games last season.
 
6/27/2014 9:28:00 PM

Insight: Neal's fantasy value will never be higher than it was in Pittsburgh where he got to play alongside MVP winners Sidney Crosby and Evgeni Malkin. Despite a weaker supporting cast, Neal is still a talented player and should score his fair share of goals for the Predators next season.

Insight: Neal is out indefinitely. He has 22 goals, 27 assists, 43 penalty minutes, 170 shots on goal and 19 power-play points in 44 games this season, so he's impossible to replace on fantasy teams.
