Neilson heads into the summer as an unrestricted free agent. But he said the impression he got from his year-end meeting with management last week is that there's a good chance he and the Lightning will agree on a deal to bring him back to the Crunch.
Neilson was one of the team's most popular players this season for his hard-edged play and extensive community work.
"I got a good feeling when I left the meeting they were definitely going to do whatever they can,'' Neilson said of Tampa Bay. "They said they were happy with my play and they'd do everything within their power to re-sign me.''
Syracuse forward Dan Sexton might re-join him in the organization. Sexton is a restricted free agent who also sounded optimistic about employment with Tampa Bay in 2013-14.
"I'm kind of hoping we can work something out in that direction,'' he said. "Obviously, I'd love to come back. We're at the beginning stages of talking again.''
