Ironic a vancouver fan is saying that considering what they say about luongos contract.

Phaneuf is ranked a top 25 defenseman by hfboards. Hes not perfect but hes a big upgrade over white. And if all we payed for that upgrade is a bunch of nhlers struggling to maintain an nhl job (stajan hagman etc) then I consider it a solid trade. The cap hit doesnt bother me that much. We can afford it.
