this leaves Vanek as the only top UFA come july 1.


Would have easily given him 7/49 the guy is a number  1 defenseman and can provide a team with lots of minutes, great player. Fixing this mess of a defense just became harder.

disagree completely.  phaneuf is not even as good as kronwall.  to rely on him as your #1 shows the state of the rest of their D.

naked is a state of mind

I don't care if it's an over payment or not, King Sh*t can now stay there for the next 7 years....The guy makes me sooo mad on 24/7, though on the Leafs side of that show they just show him, Randy & Lupul anyway for some reason-Lupul is the real deal though he's a game changer but made of glass

Just by supply and demand his price would be ridiculous on the open market. He has a big name so it comes with a big price.

To think he would sign anywhere for less than 6 million a year for 5 years would be silly. Not a gross overpayment when you think of the context.

Did not want Phaneuf in the first place.


So this comes as a "sigh" of relief.


Good for the Leafs and Phanny

Don't think its official yet, or is it?


Glad he's off the market, wouldn't have wanted to overpay for him.


I'd much rather target someone like Girardi.

Is this official yet?  Because I haven't seen it confirmed anywhere.


When you guys make threads about signings it needs to have a link to a reputable source confirming it.


When it's official someone can make a new thread with the link.
