Phaneuf is a good defenseman... he's easily a top pairing D.
Yes his offense isn't there but do you remember that phase when "Yandle > Phaneuf"
Well Yandle is absolutely piss poor defensively. Phaneuf is a good defenseman that faced some of the hardest competition last year...and was only behind Suter and Weber in that regard.
He doesn't have a reliable partner. Look at Weber and Suter without each other.
We need to find Phaneuf a good partner. He's had Beauchemin, Komisarek, Aulie, Schenn, Liles, Kostka...over the time he's been here. The only way I trade Phaneuf is if he is demanding more than 6.5M. He doesn't deserve more than that.
