I suspect we wouldn't have to throw a very big offer at him to get him to say "yes". 1 yr, maybe same money Neal makes, roughly. Enough to prove himself so he can negotiate a longer-term deal next summer.

Imagine this:

Kunitz - Sid - Neal
Sully - Geno - Radulov
Cooke - Staal - TK
Who Cares


Don't see it happening but one can only dream.
