In all seriousness Phil just needs to get his hands a little dirty - if he would just drive the net and start fighting for some space in high traffic zones he'd be dynamite. If he can't do that or doesn't want to then we better get him a true POWER FORWARD to play along side and help create some open ice. Right now he's just getting doubled teamed - and forced to the outside on every opportunity.
It sucks that we traded what would have been 2 franchise players
- for a guy that needs to have a great supporting cast around him to succeed. When evaluating PK its important not to be so fast forgetting what we gave up to acquire him. But lets try and focus on how we can get the most out of him while we have him.
Not this "franchise" word again. Seguin and Hamilton both have much to prove before they could be called "franchise". Malkin and Weber could be called franchise. Seguin? Hamilton? Not so much.
