It's me from home, and I'm tipping my hat to James Neal for his 19th goal of the season. I threw him into my column this past weekend, talking about guys who need to step up. I wrestled with throwing him in there at all, because there's no doubt Neal is trying his butt off every game. That, and he is, after all, a rookie. There are probably others I could've named before him.
Anyway, he's been none of my favorites all season and glad to see him get on the scoreboard again. Methinks the Stars' future is in good hands with guys like him.
