Defense first type of dmen, who bring next to nothing offensively and despite being big physical specimen, don't play nearly physical enough.
I'd be interested in Phillips is the Habs didn't already have Gill/Spacek...but they already have 'Phillips' type of dman on the roster...this would be overkill.
The biggest difference between Phillips and Gill is mobility. Phillips is a good skater and good footwork for a guy 6'3" 220lbs much like O'byrne. Gill struggles against teams with speed like Phillie and Pittsburgh. He's also more able to move the puck and chip in some offense, he's averaged 5-6 goals and 20 or more points almost every year in the NHL.
