As for the Neil debate going on, he's slowly being seen in the same light as Kaleta. Goes around acting tough, doesn't shut up, yet never drops the gloves.

Neil has been dropping the gloves since 01 and has fought some pretty rough characters in his career. If you have followed the game for the last 10-15 years you would have respect for him as he has fought everyone who has been someone and is someone in the enforcer/tough guy game. Domi, Chris Simon, Odjick, Parros, Shelley, Boulton, Mair, Lucic, Orr, Glass, Jackman, Corson, Asham, Oliwa, Godard, A. Peters, Hordichuk, Clarkson, Thronton, Brookbank, Gausted, Chara, white, Engelland, Westgarth, R. Rypien (RIP), Brashear, Belak...and alot of these guys he has fought multiple times.

I will defend the guy bc he is a player that has been doing this forever and is always a gamer regardless of who he goes against. Obviously he is slowing down with age and is taking on more of a grinder role for the team and not an enforcer role as that is why ottawa brought in Kassian but at least he does drop the gloves once in a while still. Orr, Prust, Gleason, Crombeen and Regehr isnt too bad of a list.

Comparing him to Kaleta though come on man.
