For all those that talk about "skating can be improved", how about naming some NHL examples for us.

Yeah, not so easily improved, is it. By age 18 (Phillips is closer to 19), you pretty much are what you are in the skating department. It's the stick skills that are much more commonly improved on. Poor skating is a huge challenge to play with, and the only way I've seen it overcome is by excellent skills in other areas (Brunette).

Very risky pick. By #28 most guys bust anyway, and Phillips has much potential of that as anyone.
