If you can't give him the edge offensively despite his stats being better, then I don't know what to say.

Also if you think White would be better than Phaneuf then it's quite obvious you're just hating on the guy because he's on the Leafs.
Phaneuf has averaged 38 points per-82 over the past 3 seasons. White has averaged 33. I qualify that as "not far behind". Given ice time differences, it's arguable than White is actually more effective (he was in 2009-10 in PPG, in both Calgary and Toronto). It's not that big a gap.
