I think you misunderstand the criticism. Dion is a good player. He's just not a smart player. He has all the tools to be elite, but lacks the brain. That leaves him as a quality player, but not the best of the best. The Phaneuf criticism actually went down after being traded to Toronto.


As for Dumba, he can't turn into Dion because he's a smart player. It would be great if he put the tools together like Phaneuf, but that would leave him a much better package as he has the hockey smarts to truly excel with the skills.
