So Chris Neil is looking for work and says he has turned down 1-way offers looking for the right fit. I always liked the guy as he fit into the tough guy who could play type, but unfortunately, I don't think the Oilers are the right fit for him as we already have Kassian fitting that role.

If Chris Neal is turning down 1 way offers then he is a moron. He's 38, he's a one dimensional player who's dimension has changed and is being phased out. He can't skate. At 38, you take whatever you can get, most guys his age are long retired.

Last year's stats - 53GP, 1-3-4 with 63 PIMs and -11. Of those 53 times he dressed, he broke 10 minutes of ice time just 9 times, including the last game of the season when the Sens rested better players. He played in two playoff games last year. In one he played 2:26, in the other he played 1:49.

He was not an effective NHL player in 2016-17, so it's crazy if teams are extending him one-way deals. If they are, he should be rushing to sign.

I pray the Oilers aren't dumb enough to pick up another character grit guy who time has passed by. I'd have rather we re-signed Hendricks than to bring in Neil now.
