I also doubt his development has stalled. He had an off year and CGY would be nuts to ditch him. He got a Norris nomination last year in his 3rd year. He's a stud.
His off-year was mainly caused by playing through an injury for most of the year that probably needed surgery.

Phanuef is in the top tier of all D in the league. He had an off year because of his injuries.
He could of had season ending surgery early on in the year and people wouldnt be saying any of this stuff about him being overrated, garbage, etc.
People have been saying his defensive game is overrated long before this season. He needs to make smarter plays on his side of the ice.

Tons of pople just say that hes just overrated. I dont think anyone has said he plays amazing in his own zone..so I fail to see how its overrated.

I agree with the guys who say this has turned into a player comparison thread. LA has no need for Phaneuf to begin with IMO. Even though none of their guys are that good yet, they have some guys with huge potential, and some very good prospects in Hickey, Teubert and Voinov (not sure if he is still a prospect). As far as CGY goes, i think they will be making a HUGE mistake if they trade this guy specially becasue his value is low with his off season and big contract.

I challenge you to find any post like that made here on HFboards. Some may say he's improving his defensive game (which he is), but no one has called him a 'defensive stud.' He's still young and his talent is still raw, give him a few years to hone his defensive game and then everyone will be singing a different tune.
