“Philip is a power forward just like his dad, Basil, was – he brings a scoring ability that I think will carry over when he becomes - and he will become, an NHLer. Philip needs to work on his skating and he needs to get a little more polished - as of right now he’s more of a ‘bull in the china shop’ type power forward which every team can use. But to be a full, all-around player he needs to keep working. And there is no evidence to say the improvements that he has made this year won’t continue on into his career in the skating department.”
It was kind of touching. I didn't know really what to expect. I'm very appreciative and thankful for the people that supported me in my time here ... as I said, we'll move back to the area at some point in our life.
