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!
