Leafs might recall Korbinian Holzer from the AHL and trade a defenceman very soon

Phaneuf just pretty much sucks. He's dumb. He's incredibly overpaid. He's got a crap shot that's incredibly wild. He's prone to terrible passes and pinching at bad times. That said, Burke loves him because his presence adds to his mystique. As long as Phaneuf's in Toronto, morons will continue to rave about that trade as the Gilmour Trade Part II, where brilliant Burke fleeced the Flames.
Didn't happen. Aulie is horrible. Phaneuf really is the most overrated player in the league. I'd love to reverse that trade just to get back Ian White, who's playing great in Detroit and may become a long-term fixture there.
I dunno. I'm thinking someone dropping comments about bad defensemen wouldn't have a username referring to one of the most bone-headed, prone-to-defensive-gaffe defensemen to ever play for the Leafs...
