Oh, he will be.

The guy's improved his defense tenfold since last season and he'll be a rock.

Only reason it would take that much is because Calgary has absolutely no reason to trade him and if for some reason the Maple Leafs (or any other team) are dying for Phaneuf, they'd have to overpay Lindros-style.

It's not fair, and it will never happen... but if a GM is told by God in his sleep to trade for Phaneuf, it would take something like that to pull it off.
