He's very much a private person and a market such as Columbus may be a place where he can thrive and be comfortable.

He just turned 25 years old and finished 6th overall in the NHL (points).

Small town USA kind of kid. I think Ohio would be the ideal location for him.

Ryan Johansen, Boone Jenner and a 1st round pick?
Decent Value. and with CBJ not looking that much better, I see that being a high 1st round pick in a deep draft year. Plus Boone Jenner has the best name in hockey.

Although Phil is a reserved guy, he has done nothing but produce in TO. And has said mulitple times he loves the city and wants to play in the limelight. Trading him for the sole reason that hes not a right fit for the city doesnt seem plausable. However leafs have another brutal season, shopping kessel wouldnt be a bad idea
