Phaneuf is 5 years younger, 5 inches taller, and over 500 thousand dollars cheaper. So that's a good place to start.

I would say that Campbell is easily the more skilled guy, and he is an efortless skater. But Phaneuf has lots of offensive talent too. And the difference is huge when it comes to physical play. Dion had 214 hits last season compared to 46 for Campbell. Now I know that hits are sometimes recorded a bit differently in different arenas. But that is over four and a half times the hits!

Combine that with the quality of competition and time on ice stats that MastuhNinks posted, and I don't see how it's not Phaneuf.

Edit: make that 6 years younger. May '79 vs April '85
