The reason his goals are down is because he cant unleash that bomb from the point on the power play, Teams are covering him and blocking his shooting lanes before he can get the shot off. So in its stead he just wrist the shot on net and hopes it gets tipped. Thats why he has so many assists this year.

Watching him lead the rush, he is an exceptional passer and skater for a defenseman. He is being used more to create offense than to provide it. The "coaching staff" needs to work on the power play to provide Phaneuf with more shooting lanes so he can be more effective. I am personally happy to see the way hes performed this year.
