There is a market for Phaneuf even do I doubt teams would be interested in him if he was to become their #1 d-man like he is in Toronto. He simply dont have the brains for that job. But a team who already have a defensive sound first pairing d-man who can play many minutes but who are looking for some one to pair him with would of course be interested in Dion.

He have a 1 1/2 year left on his $6.5m contract but since Leafs can afford to pay some of that salary that would not be a problem.

Phaneuf for RoR (if Leafs can work out a deal with him) would be beneficial for both teams.

Colin Wilson would be another player that interest me. And the idea of having Weber and Phaneuf would give Preds one of the toughest blue lines in the league. And I am pretty sure that infront of Rinne and in Trotz system and in a less exposed role I think Dion would be really good.
