He can read the emotion and momentum of a game like no one else.
When Alfie retires, I could see the Sens naming either Neil or Phillips as the next captain. Then one of them would be captain for a few years until they retired which would let one of the prospects/young players develop into the next captain. After Neil/ Phillips it could be any of Cowen, Karlsson, Turris, Greening, Smith, Silfverberg, Stone, Zibanejad or Noesen.
