Your Say: Chris Neil
We've given out our grades. Now it's your turn!
We've finished our player grades for the 2014-15 season, but that was just 9 people talking about what they think--and it was a lot of information to talk about. Now it's time for our readers to cast their votes. And with that in mind, we present our Your Say series!
It's clear that Neil's best years are behind him. Injuries kept him out of all but 38 games this year (and two playoff games) in which he recorded seven points and 78 penalty minutes. His 1.46 minor penalties per 60 minutes played is way down from his rate of 2.76 minors per 60 last year. Maybe it's a sign that he's learning not to take dumb penalties. Still, it's hard to see what he brings to the team at this stage in his career.
