When I watch Neil absolutely does his job very well. He is skating like he did 5 years ago. He had a shift with Stone and Brassard in the 3rd last game and it was likely the teams best shift of the 3rd period. Honestly now I resign Neil for another year for about $1 million and replace Kelly and AHL call ups. People here trash the 4th line a lot. To me... Neil has played excellent mostly the last two years. He would be better with better players. I hate to say this. Really hate to say it. But Lazar is not as good as Neil. He has worse hands, worse offensive instincts. And I like Lazar a lot. I am not a negative fan. And I want Lazar to have something. Next year... or hopefully this year... I would remake the 4th line. Want Pageau pushed by White to 4th line. Or White is the 4th line centre as soon as late this year. To me... the 4th line is not great... occaisionally good shifts though. To me Neil is still Neil. Neil should still be the 4th line RW and improve the centre and LWer. Neil still has hands, speed, hockey sense and physicality. So many games I see Neil making multiple really great plays and see him trashed. He is still the solution and not the problem. I wish Lazar was as smart or physical or even had Neil's hands.... seriously.
