He should not have been on our PK as he simply is not smart enough to play on the PK. His decision making is one of his major weaknesses as seen by his high giveaways and these individuals should not play on the PK. The PK stats bear this out....we were horrible!
He plays the PK, the most PK minutes of anyone on the team, because he is the best option we have. Dion is a great defense-men, just gets no support! What would you rather the PK pairings be, if you don't want Phaneuf out there?
