What happened to the kid we seen years back smashing ppl at the world Jrs. and playing that hard hitting role with Calgary while potting loads of goals with that rocket shot? Is it possible that his body has broken down to early... His career looks like its on a steady decline
As a Leaf although he has had a few bright spots.. overall he has been HORRIBLE.. cant play D (caused 4 goals last night) is not hitting, and can not hit the net... oh wait.. he did hit the net once and broke Lupul's arm.. Poor lupes thought he was in the safest spot he could be with Dion shooting.. aside from a beautiful GF this guy is a complete mess!
Don't give me its one bad game BS... been a few years now @ he makes 6.5 mil a year!
If Phaneuf can get going on the PP and keep playing his simple game, he's going to be dangerous, he's a heavy hitting, intimidating tough dman, his ability to jump into rushes, and heavy shot make him a unique player for us, he just needs to be consistent in his play and work on making that clapper a bit more accurate
He's a total stiff defensively, and offensively he refuses to pass instead unleash a constant stream of inaccurate booming high slap shots.
He just hurt Lupul ($5.25 million) for half the season.
The result of Dion's antics cost the Leafs half of Lupul's season ($2.625) which when added to Dion's already ridiculous contract becomes an even more ridiculous $9.125 per year expenditure.
He's not worth being the most costly player in the league. Crosby doesn't even get paid that much.
Trade this guy to Detroit for Ian White.
nice try but if you half one you need half the other
i think its time we trade him.
is he the guy thats going to lead the leafs to the promise land? in the next 5 years. NO
so , philly is looking to add defence, they could be a contender with him this year.
back, we get coutuier.
future centers , kadri , coutuier.
