No he's not. Also, being a "winner" doesn't mean constantly missing or almost missing the playoffs, and often not being the best player on your team when you do, then finally pitching a fit and giving up and getting traded (when you lose your #1 job) for a FAIR return (Phaneuf+decent prospect+enforcer for young top-line two-way center, top-four defenseman, middle-six winger, and enforcer) into what turned out the be the exact same situation. Sounds more like being a whiny *****, if you ask me. Look out Leafs Fans; if Franson or Gardiner overtakes Phaneuf, he'll start sulking and "need" to be traded.

What have Steven Stamkos, John Tavares, or Claude Giroux won? Would you trade Phaneuf for one of them?
Was that asked with the expectation that somebody would actually say yes and contradict themselves? LOL nobody would ever even think about trading Phaneuf for Pavelski.

Franson and Gardiner won't overtake Phaneuf because Phaneuf is much better than them. Obviously the same can't be said about Stastny and the other centers

Also, please don't compare some of the best young players in the NHL to an overpaid 50 point 2nd liner. Makes you look dumb.
