Phillips Still Undecided On His Future

from Ken Warren of the Ottawa Citizen,

The 10-minute pre-practice discussion between Ottawa Senators defenceman Chris Phillips and general manager Bryan Murray was the most intriguing development at Scotiabank Place Wednesday morning, but Phillips insists there’s nothing new in advance of Monday’s trade deadline.

Phillips says he wants to stay in Ottawa to be part of the club’s rebuilding plan, but he’s also hoping to secure a contract extension in advance of the trade deadline. If he doesn’t receive any guarantees about his future before then, he will have to decide whether to waive his no trade clause.

“I talked to Bryan (Murray) at the bench,” Phillips said. “We were just basically hanging out and we talked about a couple of things. He talked to my agent, but really, there’s nothing new that wasn’t different from before we talked.”
