I've looked at these things.
"Advanced" stats don't tell you anything beyond inter-team comparisons of players.
They won't tell you anything about how a player on one team compares to another.
So yes, while Phaneuf and Gunnarsson were our best pairing, they also bled goals against and the team finished 5th last.
Like being the smartest kid in remedial math.
