No comparison. Yzerman was an amazing offensive force in his prime, even without championships. If he retires in 1995, you could even make a HHOF case for Yzerman. Can't do that for Phaneuf.
My post wasn't about championships but about how he hasn't lived up to expectations since his younger days in Calgary.
I second that. Yzerman had his best offensive years in the late 80's to early 90's with line mates like Gallant, Probert, Burr, and Ysebaert. Nothing against those guys, but they weren't the same skill level as Shanahan, Hull, Kozlov, Fedorov.
