    That'd be an nice addition to their top line with JG and Monahan.

    Price is right. He reportedly rejected 5x5 with Vegas prior to this.

    CGY's gonna monopolize all of the left hand shot wingers. Lol.
    I love Neal and will love watching Neal in CGY. I'm annoyed they don't do the dougie anymore though.

    I agree and I see that he turns 31 at the start of the season.

    My initial thought was that it was too long, but with his style of play, I wonder if he can't still score 20 when he's 35.

    He needs to stay healthy, but that contract might not be too bad at the end of it.

    It's just five years. I don't thing it's too long given the circumstances.
