Honestly, I wouldn't go counting Phaneuf out of the race for elite defenseman just yet. Granted, I'm not so confident he will ever win a Norris. Still, I think he's going to eventually find his game.
Eh, he's a guy that consistently hasn't shown the desire to elevate his defensive zone play. Sure some guys develop it later in their careers, but some guys don't.

He kind of reminds me of a slightly more-talented Ed Jovanovski, a guy who should have been a lot better than he ended up and is barely mentioned nowadays.
