Calgary's Rivals Weigh in on Phaneuf Trade

Edmonton blog thinks Calgary blew it ("The leafs won this deal, and it's not even close"). Avs blog thinks Sutter is a genius ("Sutter might just have acquired a Stanley Cup").

The Maple Leafs get:

The Ducks get:

The Flames get:

The Kings get:
  • much less Phaneuf.
  • a slightly stronger Anaheim.
  • a possibly freaked-out and therefore more dangerous Flames, with a deeper offense and higher team I.Q..
  • an end to the deafening, idiotic Phaneuf and/or Giguere to Kings for Brown, Simmonds, Hickey and Schenn rumors.
Clear winner: Kings!
