Finding a home for Phill is not that easy. The teams that could use him don't have the assets or maybe the cap space. Other teams that would like him don't have the team around him to support him.

We are all talking about dollars on cap hits. I just don't think it will take 7mill to sign the guy unless he demands that. What did Carter get on a long term deal? His numbers were more impressive at the time and playing centre on a team that made it to the cup final, now he has a Stanley Cup ring.

Unless someone has excess talented bodies and is willing to give us a top six young forward with size, their best prospect and there first round pic I would just keep Phill. Maybe sell him on a long term contract and taking less to build a winner. I think if you wait till the end he bolts to Minny. My guess is Nonis will put out the feelers and then make a move quickly.
