Flames fan though believe that Phaneuf is not just the second coming of Derek Morris (remember how they pimped him) but the second coming of God himself and they get offended if anyone is remotely compared to him.
I'm not going to speak for all Flames fans here (some are going overboard I'll admit)
BUT pot calling kettle?? are you saying that Preds fans aren't protective of Suter?
Phaneuf is a better prospect than Morris at the same stage. I'm not even sure if there was an active message board circa 1996-97 when Morris was a junior player. If so I wasn't around
If you are referring to Morris as a 23 year old and his trade value....well he eventually netted the Flames 3 competent NHL players (Yelle,Reinprecht,Warrener) so I guess someone else saw something in him also
