No, you have that wrong. He became the #2 in Calgary after the Bouwmeester trade, and over the season he started to play like trash. So he was traded for what was actually a pretty decent package (50-point two way center, solid defenseman, 20-goal/40-point two-way winger) and then Calgary screwed up the asset management afterwards. Phaneuf has gotten his head on straight since then, and is playing better defense than he did but it's still not the defense he was being hyped up as playing by the Toronto media.
