Fantasy Impact:

The Oilers will send the Flames a third-round pick in 2020 if James Neal scores a minimum of 21 goals, and he bests Milan Lucic by at least 10 goals. Excluding last year, James Neal has had no trouble hitting the 21-goal mark in any season. Considering the Oilers lack-of-depth on the wing, there is a good chance that Neal will end up in a top-six role in Edmonton. Lining up with any of Connor McDavid, Leon Draisaitl, or perhaps most likely Ryan Nugent-Hopkins, should give James Neal every opportunity to hit the 21-goal mark next season.
