The problem is trade value. He is a rental.

Do you give up a ton of assets for possibly 1 year of a player?

And If I was Nonis, do I have someone that can take his minutes now and not later?

At most. 2 2nds this year and Hartikainen.
His shot accuracy was actually really improved this year. I definitely heard less of "Phaneuf shoots high and wide"

Also, I'm assuming the 2 2nds and Hartikainen is as high as the Oilers would go? I would think another team would be able to offer more than that even if he was traded at the deadline.

It's all pretty much moot though because we really have no replacement for the minutes Phaneuf eats each night.
