With almost a full year off hockey, I wonder how much it would have affected his development. I think next year is his contract year as well. Hopefully he comes back as that beast shutdown guy we need as Phillips has lost more than a step and isn't suited for that anymore.
I know they are two completely injuries but he has come back from a fairly serious knee injury in junior, which is also a key part of development.
He responded extremely well in his first full year in the NHL and played a full 82 game schedule. The only thing that scares me is that it's a hip injury. We just have to pray he doesn't become injury prone or having lingering issues with it upon returning.
Good to see Cowen wasn't too hungover Saw him at Crazy Horse last night.
