So just to clarify your assertion:

- Phillips is not a strong skater, and wouldn't be one of the quicker players on the Calgary Flames
- Phillips is not a strong passer, and wouldn't be one of the bettef passers on the Calgary Flames
- Phillips does not think the game as well as the players on the Calgary Flames
- Phillips does not play the game at a tempo as high as the players on the Calgary Flames

is that correct? Those are the attribute Phillips lacks in order to succeed in Darryl Sutter's system and style of play?

Ruzicka and Phillips had great chemistry with the Heat. I'd love to see them together.

Huberdeau–Lindholm–Toffoli
Mangiapane–Backlund–Coleman
Ruzicka–Kadri–Phillips

I could live with those lines. Dube has 4th line pedigree and would be a nice fit down there.

I’d be very happy with that line. I’m fine with that being Zary instead as well. I think Kadri just needs to be with good offensive players and then Dube can helm up the new fourth line. Or Coleman tbh as well if they figure Dube does better with Backlund. But I think Dube as head of the energy line with Lewis/Ritchie would be okay.

If you're going to do that why not make it a full Heat reunion.

Pelletier-Ruzicka-Phillips

I wonder if there's any willingness to move Lindy to the wing to load up the top line...

Huberdeau-Kadri-Lindholm
Pelletier-Ruzicka-Phillips
Mangiapane-Backlund-Toffoli
Ritchie-Dube-Coleman

All 4 lines capable of scoring.
