The fact that Brian Burke didn't give up any major prospects, draft picks or 1st line players he should be given a lot of credit for the package that got Phaneuf to Toronto. It's not Phaneuf's fault what he was traded for and I bet if any other team made the same deal with the same type of players, people on here would give Phaneuf a lot more credit as being a great Defensman.
