Yes and no. I value hockey sense, very highly. If Dumba can turn into a shorter Dion with more hockey sense then I'm sold.


It seems like any player that plays for Toronto automatically becomes a target for criticism.

If this part was directed at me, you're wrong. I don't hate the Maple Leafs. I was trying to be fair in my assessment of Dion. But I think any player can be under scrutiny. It just needs to be applicable to their situation. Dion Phaneuf is an established player that hasn't performed as well (statistically) under a large contract. I'd like to believe, my criticism of his current play is applicable to his situation.

Just my take.
Had it been directed at you, I would've quoted you. I just mean in general, it seems like Dion gets a lot more criticism than he deserves.
