Minnesota wants D help but are up against the cap, if we ate some of Phaneufs salary + took a cap dump from them, they have a number of prospects id be interested in.
Mitchell (2ish mill cap of uselessness) + prospects
For
Phaneuf @ 3.25 mil this year.

Those prospects would be blue chip for sure. Suter-Phaneuf for an extra 1.5 mil in cap compared to Mitchell

At this point there is no point of keeping Phaneuf. This team needs a change. I love Phaneuf. But send him somewhere where he could win, and let us rebuild the right way. I'm confident Rielly will be a legit #1 guy.
