What happened to the Dion Phaneuf of his early days in Calgary? Was I focusing too much on TSN highlights and not watching enough Flames games?

That dude fell off big time
At the time Hamrlik was pretty much a number 1 D(Or damn close to it.)
They had a really good D corp Regher, Ference, Hamrlik, leopold and Phaneuf. Phaneuf was pretty much the PP specialist so he racked up huge numbers(playing over 5 minutes per game of PP) but overall I think he his what he his. Kind of like a poor man P.K. where he will sometime make dumb plays but unlike P.K. he doesn't have the physical abilities to recover the play and overall he's really like P.K. but a young P.K. who hasn't matured... Last game was a pure Phaneuf game... Running around not playing D trying to kill people he wasn't doing that back in the days. (Not as much...) I don't know what got into him... He used to be one of my favorite players.
