Phaneuf was a dump, he has a 6.5 mil cap hit and even now playing better he isn't worth it. He was definitely NOT worth it playing like crap on a cap strapped Calgary team. The mistake wasn't trading him, it was getting short term players in return instead of picks and prospects, similar to the Cammaleri trade.
