I'd say a 2 year extension is all but guaranteed.

If we do move him out then finding a veteran D should be the #1 offseason priority. Young up and coming talent is always good to have, but you can't have a D corp where Methot is your biggest veteran presence.

Come to think of it, even if we do keep him finding a veteran D should be our #1 priority. We need more stability on the blue line.

I doubt he stays. He'll be joining his buddies in Boston soon enough either at the deadline or in the off-season. There is just no reason for him to stay anymore unless he doesn't care about winning the cup at all.

Phillips just said he's talking to the team himself and not though his agent. He also said he doesn't have a no move clause this year so he doesn't control where or if he's traded.

Ya, I'd say it's safe to assume the relationship between Barry and the Sens organization is pretty toxic after last summer.

If Phillips is asking for much more than $2.5 million per season, and longer than 2 years, then trade him. He could still be okay on the 3rd pairing, and veteran experience can be valuable. But if he's looking for much more than that, no dice. Priority should be getting a legit top 4 defenceman through trade or free agency, regardless of keeping Phillips.

I'd love for Phillips to stay as a number 5 or 6 dman and retire in Ottawa

Problem is that depends on more than just him: if he stays and the kids on the backend don't improve a good deal he's going to be forced to play more than he can handle again

Also some of you are really crazy: he hasn't been that bad this year

According to tsn1200, Phillips is representing himself in talks with the Sens right now.

To acquire Phillips, Boston would likely have to surrender a top prospect and a draft pick. Current Providence Bruins forward Ryan Spooner, who has played 22 games for Boston this season, could be the prospect to seal the deal, but it's unlikely the Bruins would part ways with the talented forward.

MURRAY PLZS!

It's funny, I was just walking home when Mendes tweeted that article, and without even reading it I figured Spooner would be the centerpiece for Phillips.

Spooner and a 2nd or third?

I'd do it

Phillips to Boston makes a ton of sense

Also gets him a shot at the cup

The only thing is that there are probably better options for Boston

Phillips would be their best option since the asking price won't be high. Their dream is to get Girardi but no way the bruins pay the asking price for him. No way would the bruins give up Spooner for a rental either. They should just trade us a pick and call it day like they did in the Kelly trade.

Can someone enlighten me on Phillips. Is he still a top-4 capable of playing 20+ a game?

According to LeBrun, #Sens offered Phillips a 1yr deal. Believe Big Rig is looking for multi-year. Tough situation with deadline looming.

The top prospect does not have to be Spooner. If Murray sees that we are not making the playoffs I would encourage him to go for Malcolm Subban as well. Some extra goaltending depth will help us more down the road than Spooner will (even though I like Spooner a lot).

I have heard Subban's name mentioned as possible trade bait as the Bs try to wrangle a D for the playoffs.

If a trade with Boston does happen I can totally see them re-signing Phillips for a couple of more years. He is a beast in the playoffs, and they are a perennial playoff team.

No. But he is more than capable of playing 5/6 extremely well with good D ahead of him, and he is great in the playoffs.

Also a powerplay specialist

Agreed. The Sens would normally have to add, but it depends on just how bad Boston needs another D for the playoffs.

If it was for a legit Seidenberg replacement, I'm sure they'd think about it, but most likely not for a 35 yr old rental
