Statsny is replaced by Duchene and Toronto actually has a quality center for Phil.
I would be down for a Phaneuf for Duchene trade, only if the Leafs aren't making a run at the playoffs this year. If they are, they will need Dion badly. If they are planning for next season, then I do it in a heartbeat. The defence next year would be fine with Jake Gardiner and Morgan Reilly taking over the Defence core
