He'd be a great fit here on our 2nd pairing if he was to agree to that kind of minutes.

He's a good defenseman forced to play 1st pairing minutes in a team that has no one better. We have Subban (and hopefully Markov) and he'd be a great fit behind those 2

Yes, he's a Leaf, yes I hate him, but come on he's not all that bad at all
He's also gonna get paid at around 6.5M$. Do you really want to pay that money for a 3rd defenseman?

I dunno why but I've never been a fan of Phaneuf. Not because he's a Leafs. Not because he's married to Elisha Cuthberg.. he just doesn't strike me as a dominant defenseman or a winner. He's not intimidating... he actually looks stupid for time to time.
