I wouldn't be a big fan of acquiring him to tell you guys the truth...not at the deadline at least. This summer as a potential UFA (at the right price) he could be an option though...
Yeah I tend to agree. Phillips is having a pretty bad year, but so is everyone in Ottawa, so it makes it kind of hard to tell if it's an indication of his play declining or just an effect of being on a terrible team. I wouldn't give up a lot to get him, personally.
