It worked reasonably well last season (given the options that were available at that particular time), so why not try it again? If it doesn't work out, then go and look for a trade partner.
There's no reason to be so quick on the "trade trigger".
Phaneuf is a left shot so he is currently playing on his proper side.
Phaneuf hasn't been making the highlight reels as much on the left side but he has been a better dman with the fundamentals of the game like not getting beat to the outside, making the simple hits along the board, defensive awareness.
Gunnarson looks like he'll be the odd man out in the not to distant future.
