Phillips stepped up huge too and was even a weapon on a struggling PP.
Yep those games were pre-trade though. Cowen was great for a stretch, OK for the rest. We will miss him but only because we were counting on him to improve. I think Phillips and a combination of Boro, Wier and Benoit can be nearly as good as Cowen/Phillips last year. It's our #2 and #6 DMen that might be the issues. #4/5 isn't as much of a dropoff imo.
