I am not a fan of Dion Phaneuf, never was. if you cheque the states for goals against while he was on the ice you will see the results. He shoots he misses the net 90% of the time. He should change the angel of his blade on his stick. He gets caught out of position many times HE IS PROBABLY A NICE GUY BUT FOR SURE NOT MY FAVORITE PLAYER BY FAR.I Hope they trade him this summer

He started off the season with subpar play but has definitely turned his play around as of late. He may not put up top numbers offensively but he's always matched up against opponents' top players for a reason. And definitely a great leader

I'm surprised the Leafs even have a guy with a French name on the team.
Leaf management is traditionally anti-French. They pass on Robitailles and St. Louises and Brodeurs.
Boston has four forwards with French names:
Bergeron, Paille, Marchant, Seguin
Leafs got Phaneuf and Lilles on D. Lilles won't be playing in B.

Burke's success with Pronger deal in Anaheim only reason for Phaneuf deal.

Trade Dion for Leaf sake. Oilers is a good pick for Sam G. Make the trade.

Nice thought but I doubt the Oilers will part with Gagner right now
