We need Phaneuf because he is our last bastion of defensive hope man, look at our team, we are dying a slow death of The creeping variety. Save yourself go now home to the mountains before our fans tears run over you an freeze you into a 200lbs block if collective tear ice!
Today? Yes. Two years from now? We're deep with young D with Top 4 upside, but thin on forward prospects with legitimate top 6 upside. Phaneuf is better than EJ, but EJ is a RHD and a better caphit, and then Stastny is a substantial upgrade over Bozak.
