I'd have no problems with Phaneuf coming here. I think he was being asked to do too much in Calgary and that once he got here, his role would be clearly defined - add some much needed snarl and meanness to the blue line. To add to it, he brings another thing that this team can certainly use - his dislike of Sidney Crosby. I could see Phaneuf running him into the ground come playoff time and can do the same to Malkin.
The only thing is, to make that kind of move, more salary than just Hartnell would need to go. I know that this wouldn't be popular, but Gagne would be more ideal from this point simply because he makes a million bucks more than Hartnell does and with Nodl being added, it might come close to the salary that Phaneuf receives. Once again, that's just my $0.02 worth.
