I'm not a huge fan of Phaneuf. I can understand the thought that locking him up for seven years at seven million is too much.

However, with the cap expected to rise dramatically and a seven (or eight) year term limit, you aren't going to come close to a player like Weber, Suter, Keith, or Doughty at $7m as a UFA.
