I think Neal will have to be on line 1 or 2 to produce anything this year.

I think Neal will get every opportunity to play in the top six. At the moment, only Draisaitl is a better left wing option for Tippett.

Holland has limited cap space and has to plan for the possibility of paying out bonuses to one of his goaltenders and perhaps one, or two, players on ELCs. I doubt he will try to fill his 3C with a free agent. He will either trade for another centre, or he will roll the dice and hope that one of Haas, Grandlund, Khaira, Gagner, or Marody can do the job.
