He needs to take this team by the throat and prove he is capable of handling that pressure. Right now, this team is seriously lacking leadership. And, you're right, Phaneuf has to be held accountable for his own shortcomings. Perhaps by taking that responsibility in public will rub off on his teammates.
Honestly, on some nights, if Phaneuf and Connolly ever went to change a lightbuib together, you might want to have a camera close by. Something worth recording is bound to happen.
Brilliant stuff: yes yes yes yes yes yes yes!
