I don't understand why Ottawa fans keep assuming Neil is leaving. The media and so many fans keep *****ing about team toughness well Neil is consistently top 5 in both hitting and PIMs and he doesn't score enough to warrant an Avery type contract.

Would I keep Neil for $2,5M? I wouldn't blink. There just aren't that many players who can do what he does.

In any case, Ottawa doesn't have the cap room to acquire Schneider, our owner likes to have us $2-3M under it to start the season. Add to that the fact that there's no way Ottawa tries to help Anaheim in any way and I just don't see the makings of a deal between the two clubs.
