I agree there is no need to move him but I think a player like Neil can bring back a significant return (relative to his 3rd/4th line status) under the right circumstances. At the deadline he's the exact kind of player teams are desperate for - for a team that's a few years away from competing he affords an opportunity to return assets - picks and/or prospects - that this organization needs to have.
If no one ultimately wants to overpay keep him but if someone is desperate enough I don't hesitate to pull the trigger - in my mind he's a replaceable asset long term.
