    That would be epic. Such a good idea. Lived in Portland and Seattle and spent many days on the road between the two, this is so necessary.

    Why the hell would Calgary do that, even with Edmonton retaining some salary and offering a conditional pick?

    Okay, a pick and retained make sense.

    Neal has less cap hit but more term. So Calgary gets more cap hit(minus retained) for less term and a pick.
    Edmonton has to retain and so gains no real cap space, but they get the player with more potential in Neal.

    If Neal has a bad year next season this is another fail for the oil. However, it also has the chance to go well if Neal can regain his form with McDavid/Draisaitl/Nugen-Hopkins.

    Its a roll of the dice for Edmonton for essentially the same expense they had. So they went from no hope so some hope.

    Huge win for Edmonton Neil has only had 1 bad season. Far more likely to bounce back.

    Can easily see him getting 25 with McDavid. I hope Lucic can play third line minutes for the Flames and be productive. Still one of my favorite Bruins

    Call me crazy but I can see Lucic rebounding playing on a better team.

    I'm pulling for Looch and hope he has a rebirth, but this seems to make no sense for Calgary

    Though I think it says something about James Neal that he's been on five teams in the last five seasons

    Really like the Neal deal for EDM. Guy could be a 30/30 player easy with McDavid. Neal's S% last year was an anomaly. Great deal for EDM

    I could see him messing really well. They play a brand of hockey he likes. He'd probably be a solid mentor for Matt.

    I wouldn't be surprised if Neal has a bit of a bounce back.

    He had the Stanley Cup runner up hangover two consecutive years, plus the big contract to live up to.

    A full summer off, lessened expectations, and some ice time with McDavid could see him put up better numbers.
