The Oilers would definitely pass. Actually I think the other 28 teams would as well. Neil's a character guy, but he's not worth an early 2nd "+ a bit" and not a chance do you get a player like Omark, or Pitlick. Oiler fans were told they'd be lucky to get a 2nd and a mid range prospect for Penner...???
Well Penners obviously worth more than that for starters. 2nd off, I think some teams would give that for Neil (they were open to it in his UFA year and he was awful then). He's been having a pretty good year and last year he was amazing. He's a perfect addition to a contender. An above average 4th liner even without his fists, and a tough guy too. Teams don't value 2nds like HF. I don't even want to trade Neil, he's a guy I really like and would really like to keep for at least the duration of his contract, but if he is dealt the east I'd be satisfied with is a 2nd or around that.
