Neil has fought plenty of heavyweights. What do you consider him then? a Light Heavy?

You're one of the worst teams in the league. How does Orr 'enforce fear into the other team'? By letting them go so far ahead on the score sheet that they'll fear they get too complacent?

Neil's fought a lot of heavyweights but doesn't usually fair well against them. Brashear & Lucic handled him quite easily. I'd definitely consider Lucic one of the better fighters in the league and his size makes him a heavyweight.

Neil's in the Mair/Rypien weight class who occasionally will step up in weight class when needed. He also won't back down from a challenge unlike Donald Brashear.

Neither Neil nor Lucic have fought many heavyweights.

I just have 3 categories of fighters. Heavyweights (Orr, Brashear etc), Middleweights (Lucic, Neil, etc.) and Lightweights. Partially I break it up in my head based upon a combination of skill and size (Orr and Lucic aren't that different in size, but Orr would be expected to pound Lucic in a fight)

That's not meant as an insult or a knock on them, it's just what they are.

Both of them will occasionally (2-3 times per season) fight true heavyweights (Orr, Brashear, etc.) but they're middleweight fighters in my mind.
