I'm not okay with anybody screwing up. But I can understand how Emery would have cheated in that situation, being beaten so many times that night on 2 on 1s due to the perfect pass getting across (which was the defensemen's fault). There's a difference between that and thinking it acceptable.

What I can't get through my head however is how a lack of confidence in the goalie would lead to a player playing horrible defense in front of him, forgetting ANY and ALL hockey fundamentals taught from even the most basic levels. As I said in my last post, trying to compensate for a goaltender can lead to many things. But doing nothing to make his life any easier and everything to make it harder isn't one of them.

When did I say anybody screwing up was something to be okay with?

As a Leafs fan- Schubert!

To answer the question the way you intended it: Phillips, a strong positional player, decent skating, and learned alot from Chara (also taught Chara alot). I'd trust Phillips to do the job right.
