3. Phaneuf: 2.80
4. Liles: 2.84
5. Gardiner: 2.99
T-6. Schenn: 3.18
T-6. Komi: 3.18

Goals Against Per 60 Mins (Penalty Kill)
1. Gardiner: 6.11
2. Phaneuf: 7.05
3. Komisarek: 7.41
4. Gunnarsson: 7.56
5. Schenn: 8.34
6. Liles:12.27
7. Franson: 29.03

And lastly, among all defencemen in the NHL who played more than 70 games last season, Phaneuf was third in terms of Quality of Competition. He faced tougher competition than Chara, Girardi, Lidstrom, Timonen, Keith, Weber, and Suter to name a few.

Within the same group of 70GP+ d-men (98 in total) his Relative Corsi Quality of Competition was eighth.

So what do you pay a defenceman who plays the third most difficult minutes in the league and also manages to end up twelfth in scoring among d-men? A sizeable amount.
Pretty much all that needs to be said right here. If anything, this shows Phaneuf needs a better partner/help.
