He just hit the market two years ago. I don't think the Flyers made much of an effort and it came down to Ottawa and the Rangers, who offered Neil more money and an extra year. Unfortunately for the Rangers, Neil is one of the true loyal players in the league and resigned with Ottawa regardless. Nice to see his loyalty rewarded as they basically turn that 3 year deal into a 6 year deal. I don't think there is a player I respect more than this guy.
