Depends on the Phaneuf you get. He definitely has all the tools to be a top ten Dman, however since coming to Toronto he hasn't really had the best partner for his pairing IMO. Gunnarsson is probably the best in the regard.

At the end of the day though, the guy is a horse. Plays a ton of minutes and isn't a 'sore spot' in any situation. He's pretty good on the PK, PP and ES.

My biggest knock on Phaneuf when he joined the Leafs was that he tried too much, and that took away from his game. In the Last couple of years, he's simplified his game and it's done him well.

He's been terrific under Carlyle this year IMHO.

I think he's just outside of the top 10 though. Still not a knock, it can change any year.

HFBoards is the authoritarian source to get a genuine and unbiased opinion of a Toronto Maple Leaf.

Not even top-30? Are you kidding me.

Top 150 at least

But he would climb the chart a bit if he didn't have that visor to hit people with.

Top 30 for sure. May be an argument to be made for top 20. Top 10 though? Nope.

Disagree with the bold.


He's not top 10 at all. I'd slot him in the 15-20 range though

It's hard to argue Phaneuf over OEL at this point considering OEL is having a Norris calibre season.

Was going to say this, then saw the user name.

OEL is without a doubt a top 10 D at this point.
