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.

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 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.
