HE is a shadow of that guy. I wouldnt complain about any of this if managing the CAP is a very important part to success. A few over paid contracts leaves u with no money to spend, so u end of calling Brett Lebda, Ricard Wallin, Hanson, Crabb, Boyce, Dupuis.
It took me two seconds.

Scroll to the leafs, You will see the usage of zone starts and quality of competition. Phaneuf has, by far, the hardest competition on a night in, night out basis, and relied to play in not only the offesnive zone heavily, but in the defensive zone as well. This clearly shows the level of resonsiblitly on the ice that Phaneuf plays is more than an other defender on the leafs.

Your point about not have enough cap left over is just plain wrong. Does LA have issues building a solid defense group giving Doughty 7 million? No they don't.
