So last Sunday The Toronto Maple Leafs held a big surprise news conference to announce a big trade. Big it was, The Leafs sent a bunch of players packing and in return got 3 players from The Calgary Flames, Dion Phaneuf being the main player.
I really do not know why Calgary gave up on Phaneuf. I know he is not having as great as a season as expected, and has been left of The Canadian Olympic team roster, but man he is only 24 years old and still has a lot to learn in the NHL and is only going to improve as time goes on.
Yes the leafs gave up Matt Stajan, Ian White, Niklas Hagman, Jamal Mayers, but in the long run I have to give this trade in favour of The Maple Leafs, since down the road everyone will still know who Dion Phaneuf is and those others players people will be saying who is that.
