With so many Phaneuf haters, it would be funny to see how many fans would be hoping to get him if he were available. I thought he had a solid year though.

What a piece of shit trade, we are in trouble if we keep giving away players like this. Nonis are you out of your fucking mind

can't see bernier and reimer co-existing for long....suspect that nonis thinking of moving reimer while his recent top performance against boston  still resonates---who needs a goalie besides edmonton and philly who have assets to trade


philly has simmonds etc--oilers have several young hot shot fwds better than frattin as well as high pick



wouldn't surprise me to see reimer gone before the draft

It's not like Nonis is trading Phanuef for Seguin. He will get real value.

Welcome to silly season! Phaneuf isn't going to Edmonton, they hate him there.

I don't mind the Leafs going with the Chicago goaltending model. It's worked out alright for them...

The Mayor John Hoven ‏@mayorNHL

Classic Lombardi on the call. He's clearly not happy that the $500K in cap relief aspect came out. Seems he was asked to not mention by TOR


How in fuck did they think they could keep that secret

Real_ESPNLeBrun: Leafs fans will love Jonathan Bernier. He is the real deal, folks. Believe you me.

XProteautype:: NHL people I've talked to say Bernier has a shot at being a big-time impact player. Haven't heard anyone say the same of Frattin/Scrivens.

No. It's all coming together now. It's going to be Phaneuf for Gagner. Then Grabo will be bought-out. Then Kessel moved for an apple pie, and Komi bumped up to forward to take his spot on the 1st line.

Great to see the old MLHS mass psychosis back in full swing.

Man just b/c he is on the block doesnt mean we are moving dion. I mean come on guys get it together. We havent even dealt him yet and ppl are saying nonis is a idiot. Maybe its just a negotiating tactic or maybe phaneuf wants out. who the FUCK knows.

Think of it like this, if Reimer went down for even 30 games this season, would you really want Scrivens and ? starting all those games. Frattin's a player but hes also 25 so hes not a young prospect and has had a couple knee injuries in the past year. Sucks to lose him but if a guy like Clarkson comes in that is an upgrade.

Only Phaneuf trade I could ever imagine is some play for the #1 pick with Colorado

Like I said Ship him to EDM and get us there pick, use that to get further up the draft, possibly aquiring more assets along the way, and the buyout scenerios hehehehehe

Ugh, if we trade Dion, we are officially the dumbest organization in the league

Phaneuf to Pittsburgh for Letang.... other than that.. NO DEAL!!

Fuck it Nonis... go trade phaneuf, lupul, kessel, Gardiner and reimer while youre at it.

Matt Frattin, drafted 4th round in 2007, played 82 NHL games, 28 points.

This is a good deal because our goaltending was so shitty this season. Wait... what? We have a starter with the same career save percentage as the Habs' Carey Price, who is widely considered to be an all-star future olympian? When did this happen?

Burke showed us that there can be trades and plans hell a year in advance, it really shouldnt surprise anyone

Jay_Berg

hmm Capgeek says that Phaneuf has no NMC/NTC.

Still doesnt make much sense though. Nonis would have to be bringing in another big time defenseman to justify moving out Phaneuf.

Love to read all your posts guys, but its damn near impossible..

I really don't understand, why would we trade our top dman when we are looking at ADDDING to our D this off season? doesn't make any sense to me unless Nonis has a replacement already lined up, but I doubt he does....

Is Bernier a trade chip for the Flames , TB, or Devils  1st rounder

Love it, Bernier should shore up our goaltending for the whole season. Less of a worry now if Reimer gets injured again too, plus adds some serious competition

DWCMLHS
DWCMLHS

LOL. Yep, let's trade a top-15 Dman in the NHL when we don't even have a fucking real #2 Dman. Makes total sense. Nonis is steering this team back towards mediocrity after our first successful season in nearly a decade.

Told you guys it was going to happen, and most thought I was crazy...lol

Love this trade boys. Sure glad we didn't lose the 1st round pick that was being speculated. 2nd rounder either next year or the year later, we will replenish that in no time.

Phaneuf - any deal for him would make sense in a way? His value is high right now?

Oh my god.  It's serious.  Phaneuf is on the block.  McKenzie just confirmed.

Good trade, goalies are hard to come by. I'm wondering if Reimer could be sent packing at some point.

Frattin is 25 and still relatively unproven and Scrivens is a beaut of a person but just an average gaolie. Wasn't happy we gave up a 2nd but at least its not for this year. Wondering if Maca is brought back now too
