Neil to remain with Senators for 3 more years.

The Ottawa Senators have re-signed gritty forward Chris Neil to a reported three-year contract extension worth $5.75 million, in which he’s earned $2 million per season in the first two seasons, and $1.75 million in the final season. The new contract would commence in 2013-14.

SPECTOR’S NOTE: This shouldn’t be surprising. Neil is considered a valuable part of the Senators core group and obviously want to keep him around a while. His new contract pays him just over $1.9 million per season as an annual average salary, meaning he’s making pretty much the same as he’s making ($2 million) on his current contract.

    Considering prust just signed for 2.5 per I would have thought neil could of gotten more. Must of taken less to stay in ottawa?

    Considering some of the money being thrown around this summer he seemingly did take a ‘hometown’ discount. The contract takes him into his 37th year so it gives some security for Neil and his family. Great signing by Ottawa for a heart and soul guy.

    Prust got more because of Quebec taxes. His take home might work out to be a little more than Prust in the end.
