1 point through 9 games, and he looks lost out there. At least this clears the misconception some people had that Gunnarsson was better because Dion was his partner, no it was other way around. An injured Gunnar plays better than healthy Phaneuf.
I still haven't see one single slapshot from him that was on net, and it reached the goalie. Can't think of a worse Leafs captain in past few decades.
Locker room speeches don't matter as much as on-ice performance. This team isn't going anywhere with "leadership" like this. Just because coach thinks he is worth playing against opponent's top lines doesn't make him the best, when he keeps on failing on his assignments.
Gunnarsson is better than Phaneuf . So is Gardiner.
