Chris Neil had some choice words for Dany Heatley when he asked out of Ottawa.

So, should Neil punch Dany Heatley’s lights out to welcome him back to the capital?

“No, that’s exactly what San Jose wants,” said former NHL winger Matthew Barnaby. “That would play right into their hands. If Chris Neil fights Dany Heatley, (Heatley’s) not going to fight back and (the Sharks will) just get a power play.

“If they get into that kind of game, they’re going to get into a stupid game with San Jose and you don’t want to be on the receiving end of that.

“Let the fans take care of that. If Neil wants to finish a check, that’s fine ... but I don’t think he’ll be fighting Dany Heatley.”
