Well we have Kronner as the number 1, so Phaneuf could slide in as a number 2 or even a nice complementary piece to pair with DannyD.
Well the Leafs can always take back another bad contract to even the caphit. As much as people like to question Phaneuf he is tasked to play over his capabilities in Toronto I honestly believe he would do well here.
Which other realistic and not too expensive option is available ? Boychuck is re-signed and I highly doubt the Hawks will make Seabrook available anytime soon.
If we get Phaneuf he'll most likely be in the same situation, but older and probably playing on his off side.
Even considering that, he might be the best d-man available.
I also think he is the best available one because 1. I think Seabrook will stay with the hawks and 2. Green is another risk because of his injury history
