Phillips
2014 3rd round pick

For

P.K. Subban
2013 4th round pick

Habs get a fast, shoot-first winger of proven quality and a 3rd-line grinder/energy-guy who can chip in offensively. In addition, Zack Phillips is a promising center who has excellent hands, good vision, very talented offensively without being a liability defensively AND has the ability to grow a great beard.

Wild gets Subban and a mid-round pick.

Remember that Phillips is not just a throw-in: He was a 1st round pick in 2011 draft, and has progressed fairly well. He projects to be a top-6 forward and he has a very high upside. Only reason we'd be interested in moving him is that, well, we're pretty stacked on forward prospects. He'd have to fight Granlund, Zucker, Coyle and Larsson to get a roster spot, and that doesn't include the vets/established NHLers. It's not a knock on him, but right now, there's no room for him.
