  • Chris Neil: Unfazed by lack of calls in free agency

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (7/30/17) Neil is "not stressed at all" by the fact that he hasn't signed with a new team four weeks into free agency, Postmedia reports.

    Neil's fourth contract with the Senators has expired, so he's looking for work as an unrestricted free agent. Apparently, the 38-year-old is getting attention on the open market, but he won't take just any offer that's on the table. "Everything is pretty quiet right now," Neil said. "Obviously, I've had some offers from teams. Looking at it, it wasn't the right fit at the time. There's some stuff in the air, and we're still going through it. It's not just me I'm thinking about. It's my wife and my kids. It's got to be the right kind of fit, like Ottawa has been through my whole career." Indeed, Neil had been property of the Sens since they drafted him in the sixth round of the 1998 draft. He's accumulated 250 points (112 goals, 138 assists) in 1,026 games.

    Chris Neil: Will be let go

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (6/14/17) Neil will not be brought back by the Senators next season, Bruce Garrioch of Postmedia reports.

    Neil has been with Ottawa for the past 15 seasons since being selected by the organization in the sixth round of the 1998 NHL Draft. Unfortunately for the 37-year-old, changes to the game have made enforcers a relic of the past. The winger played in a mere 53 outings this year, totaling four points and 63 PIM. Neil will look to catch on with another team, but if he doesn't, he will retire as No. 20 all time in PIM with 2,522.

    Senators' Chris Neil: Expected to watch Game 1 from press box

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (5/13/17) Neil is likely to serve as a healthy scratch Saturday for Game 1 of the Eastern Conference finals against the Penguins, Renaud Lavoie of TVA Sports reports.

    The elder statesman needs to draw into just five more postseason contests to reach 100 in his career, but we suspect the Senators will be looking to deploy a skater with more of an offensive touch to hang with the attack-happy Penguins.

    Senators' Chris Neil: Likely to make 2017 playoff debut Saturday

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (5/6/17) Neil is expected to play in Game 5 against the Rangers on Saturday, John Shannon of Sportsnet reports.

    Neil hasn't hit game ice since April 9, but he's on track to be unleashed in a pivotal playoff contest. The Senators evidently don't want to get outmuscled in their own barn, and deploying the grizzled veteran certainly plays to that idea. Neil hasn't appeared in a playoff game since 2014-15, but he's been involved in 93 total postseason contests. Don't expect miracles from Neil from a fantasy standpoint since he'll almost assuredly be in a bottom-six role.

    Senators' Chris Neil: Back in lineup for finale

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (4/9/17) Neil (finger) will rejoin the lineup for Sunday's regular-season finale against the Islanders.

    It's tough to tell if Neil's recent absence was a healthy scratch, but he will return with a large number of healthy bodies taking a day off for the finale. Considering he owns just three points despite dressing for 52 games this season, the veteran shouldn't be a target in daily lineups Sunday.
