Phaneuf makes what a defenseman 12th in points and tied for 6th in goals should be making. I await your hyperboles.
Phaneuf is so overpaid its not even debateable. Not sure what your thinking. U cant look at 2 players with horrid contracts and say thats the standard in which all other players should be paid. Your just making a terrible situation even worse. U could mention Mike Komasarek(4.5 million cap hit) and pay everyone according to his contract. Even though Komasarek should not make over 2.5 million. When u start making big mistakes like that u have no idea of cap management and thus your hurting your teams ability to sign other players.
