Phaneuf is being criminally underrated by some in this thread.
Phaneuf's oeuvre as captain of the maples leafs speaks for itself. You can polish a turd...

And just how is it exactly 'underrating' when most people on here are looking to sign him to essentially the same contract, or up to as much as $7mil/year? That contract is one of the worst in the entire league. 7mil caphit would be half a million less than it took to sign Suter for THIRTEEN YEARS.
