Anyone think there is a chance Leafs move him at the deadline if it looks like they aren't going to be able to come to terms on an extension?
If that did happen and the Oilers we're allowed to talk him Phaneuf and he wanted to sign an extension with us I would move something like our '15 1st + Smid +prospect + later pick in Exchange for Phaneuf (UFA) + Reimer (RFA) + Liles (dump)
I know alot of leafs fans will say they aren't interested in moving either of them right now but I'm looking at this from a TDD point of view and by then they will know whether Dion is going to resign and also they should have a better idea of who is going to become the definite #1 goalie. Both of their goalies have been playing pretty well and I can;t imagine they will both be happy in a platoon role past this season.
Phaneuf would be a definite upgrade on this team but if he wants over 7 mil I don't know if we can afford that
