I think we could get him for 3 million/year, and he would give our super young D-core (especially with Reilly next year) some stability in its own zone.
Edit: This is assuming that we trade or buy-out Komisarek or Liles (or both)
I'm pretty sure it was Regehr who bumped heads with Phaneuf during their time togeher in Calgary, which ultimately lead to Phaneuf being traded. Probably wouldn't be a great idea to re-unite them.
I agree though, we do need a veteran defensive rock to play with Dion. A guy like Willie Mitchell or Brooks Orpik would be great, but I doubt either are available.
