The part about Phillips 'not buckling' in the play-offs was ironic...

I guess the author missed our little trip to the Finals.

1 play does not make a career.

Phillips has been one of the best Senators in the playoffs every time we're there.

Phillips is one of those players that steps it up in the playoffs.

Playoff-Phillips is better-Phillips.

This.

Anyone who's watched the Sens for a while knows this.

The self goal in the finals doesn't take away from the fact he's one of the top Senators ever to play in the post season. Playoff Phillips is a beast.

Soo.. can this be announced already? I'm getting annoyed with people trumpeting Neil for captain

Let's end the silliness and make Captain Giggles official.

Seriously, it's a no-brainer.

C- Spezza
A- Phillips
A- Neil

Why are we even arguing this?

He's 23, going into his 5th season and has a Norris. He's ready for an A

No.

You Don't strip Neil of his A.

Your posts always give me the sense that real life and videos games are the same to you.

I still think Phillips should get the C with Spezza and Karlsson getting the A's.

Perfect.

Phillips and Neil act as the perfect ying-yang, light-dark, angels-on-the-shoulder conscience for Spezza.

That's a way of looking at it. Not a bad way either.

I just always thought of Neil as the ideal sergeant. Can fill in as a lieutenant if needed but you want him out there doing the dirty work that typically falls outside the purview of a commissioned officer. That's a belabored military analogy but the only way I can put it.

Sorry but Karlsson is still a kid and still has a lot of learning to do. Having all the skill in the world doesn't mean he has the maturity of the other men in the locker room.

Yup! Give him the 'C'.

and either continue with Phillips/Neil as Assistants, but I wouldn't mind seeing Karly with an 'A'.

If Spezza is named captain, Phillips will wear the C for a third of the season anyways. Spezza is rhe right choice for the future, but realistically Phillips is the real leader and is technically next in line.

the only reason Neil wore an A is because Spezza was injured. the full time A's were Phillips and Spezza, there's nothing to be stripped of.

He was an alternate A, and would have the same role in that situation.

He's not a kid. He's a married man. He's the face of the franchise and future captain. they did the same thing with Spezza.
