Pay attention to what I am giving up for him. CC has no value in this organization long-term, same with Cullen. Coyle and Zucker are ahead of Phillips on the depth chart. Mario Lucia may have more upside than Phillips. You have to give-up a bit to get something. Plus you have to clear out some of the salary.
And a 2013 1st rounder.

Besides, Cullen won't be traded unless he decides to waive his NTC.

I'm not opposed to trading Phillips, but we would be selling extremely low at this point. Cal Clutterbuck alone can fetch a decent asset so I'd rather package the deal around him, but not for Subban. Nothing against the guy, but I think he's overrated.
