@Squidz, I disagree, I think in his rookie year and the 2 years following he was stellar, and a highlight reel. He showed great improvement, up until 08-09, which was the year of sloppy seconds iirc.. I think that got to him, combined with the Calgary coaching merry go round.
I'm guessing you don't understand the statement.

Phaneuf is a very skilled athlete. He just doesn't have the hockey brain to go with. He could be stellar, could have highlight reel play, and could show great improvement year after year, but that doesn't make him "hockey smart."
