Dan Girardi vs. Dion Phaneuf

Taking contracts into consideration, who would you rather have on your team?

This year I assume, not career? As players Phaneuf, but on contracts you have to take Girardi at half the price. Terrible poll.

Girardi, easily. I hate Phaneuf, he is extremely overrated and a big coward to boot.

Girardi, but Phaneuf is underrated and is most definitely not a coward.

I'm a nucks fan and I've hated phaneuf since his flames days but he is becoming criminally underrated. It's Phaneuf quite easily for me. Not even close.

"contracts into consideration" is such a cop out to draw votes to Girardi. 6.5 million is a big amount that many teams wouldn't be able to take on.

Especially with contracts in consideration its Girardi. The guy is a workhorse and not flashy so he doesnt get credit.

Dion is your typical flashy dman that gets more credit then he deserves because he'll throw the big hit or have a booming slapshot goal, he still needs to work on his defensive game big time

Phaneuf doesn't even get credit. And, he has a solid defensive game to boot this year.

Contract's make this pool ridiculous.

I'm still waiting for the one day i see you pick a leaf player, or side with the Leafs.

It will come someday i think...

as for the question. Depends on the team. A team with salary i would say 95% would take Phaneuf, but if Phaneuf puts a team near the limit, they take Girardi happily.

On these boards you could pit Phaneuf vs. Lebda or Aki Berg and Phaneuf is still losing it.

Or he can lose against the guy that didn't rely on fans to get into the ASG, and might be the only player to get into the ASG because of defense.

Phaneuf is underrated by non-leafs fans in the same fashion he is overrated by Leafs fans. It's finding that balance in between that's tricky.

Girardi should win the poll even without taking contracts into consideration, let alone at half the price of Dion.

At least Phaneuf moves the puck in the right direction. Girardi can't even get out of his own zone.

It must be eating at you that the Rangers are still in first place in the east and just beat Boston in Boston. Oh but shots and stats or something.

Coward? He fights when he should fight and hits when he should hits. I don't think I've seen a very dirty play by him other than that one on Kassian.

Anyways.. tough to call. Different players. Also Girardi is on one of the best teams in the league so that kinda sways people opinions. I'm sure if Phaneuf was on NY he would be +30 and be regarded as one of the best Dmen in the league.
