Chris Neil has garnered some interest as an unrestricted free agent, but he's waiting for a deal that is the most suitable for him and his family.
"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." He is confident that he will play in his 16th NHL season in 2017-18 and he is looking for a one-year, one-way contract.
