Given current criteria it was not perfectly clean. Back in the day it was a clean hit. Today, it's questionable. But in Neil you have guy who has mastered that type of hit.

Neil deliberately targets players and hits them to injure them. There is no question about that. As they cross the blue line Neil has Boyle squarely in his sites and lines him up to perfection. It's as plain as day.

I grudgingly admire it actually.

Other than his more clownish behavior, the Rangers need a guy just like Neil and they have needed him for years.
