Phaneuf's cap hit is massive and as the only Leafs fan who posts regularly in this thread stated, they can't spare defensemen.
Trading for Luongo for Phaneuf would simply be a matter of trading one cap problem for another from the Canucks standpoint.
As soon as Phaneuf comes in, Alex Edler is your sixth highest paid defenseman at $3.25m and due a massive raise; the Canucks would have to dump Keith Ballard and probably someone else too in order to accomodate Phaneuf.
Edler, who appears to be wanting a big pay-raise, should be moved. He would bring in that "serviceable depth" forward Canuck's posters seem to desire.
