Phaneuf's name hasn't been mentioned...With Lupul seeming more captain-like, with above mentioned replacing offence, perhaps MacTavish is targeting Phaneuf?
If moved, Gardiner would have a very Rask-like feel in terms of loss.
He can target him all he wants but WHY would Toronto even REMOTELY consider moving Phaneuf? the team is not in a rebuild mode they are looking to make moves to get to the next level trading Phaneuf does not achieve that.
I have said befor a deal around liles and Hemsky or Grabo and Hemsky something like
2nd or 3rd
Then with Scrivens gone Noins is free to try to land JB from LA a package that would likely center around Frattin
