Chris Neil after Kelly trade

Chris Kelly fetched a 2nd.

What would Chris Neil fetch?

$2 Million cap, signed until 2012-13

A second... this draft is as deep as the 02 draft.

Contending teams will be thrilled obtaining a player like Neil for a late 2nd

I would love to see this guy in the playoffs with a contending team while he's still in his prime.

I could see the Rangers being interested. Not sure where he'd fit but Slats was after him at UFA.

No. I'm cool with Kelly to Boston (as I actually like Boston), but no chance will Neil land in Montreal without a severe overpayment.

I do not want to face Neil 6 times a year, thank you very much.

This draft is going to be like the 2003 draft. Deep as ****. Get us some 1st and 2nd rounders. Package if you have to.

Chris Kelly and Mike Fisher are traded, but somehow Chris Neil is definitely not being traded?

Different players with different contracts.

We'll need Neil in the next 2 seasons to do what he does best while playing a regular shift:

a) to hit everything that moves
b) to protect all the young guys coming in

Even crappy teams need certain types of players, and this is the type of player that a crappy team needs going forward.

That said, he'll be moved if the asking price is a 1st.

no offence but you can get 4th line goons to hit and fighta nd protect from the ahl for 600k and save that extra 1.5m for offensive type players.

just saying neil will be moved if a deal for a 1st or 2nd plus prospect is offered.

Agreed, but you won't see that being offered for "4th line goons", and that's because Neil is also a good hockey player.

The Habs are a team that will offer a lot... but it might not be enough.

neils role is to protect star players and he is good at it and a good 3rd liner as well i guess but, if all your looking for is someone to fight and potect spezza, karlsson et al, you can get that for dirt cheap and save the money

The Oilers would certainly be interested... I would love to see a fourth line of:

Glenncross - ???????? - Neil

And in case you haven't received the Memo, the Oilers will be going hard after Glenncross should he reach free agency. Time to correct a wrong.

I'd hold out for a 1st/super-blue-chipper if I was Murray. Neil > Kelly IMHO... not necessarily as a player directly, but as a trade asset, I think so. Neil will be in demand. But at the same time, if Ottawa has a young rebuilding team, it will do them good to have Neil around to teach the kids some heart, and him and Carkner can help protect them from the big baddies in the league.

I think the Sens will be inclined to keep Neil. But if the demand for him just rises to the point where it would be crazy not to accept a deal - like for a solid 1st rounder - then, how could you not take that?

I think Neil could be had by a Western Conference team for a 2nd or equivalent prospect. If anyone offered a 1st (they won't) I'd take it in a heartbeat.
