Stats are not the whole story for sure, but if you’re always coughing it up…the stats will point in that direction. Phaneuf has been a bigger playoff bust than Bieksa and that is really hard to argue otherwise. Although I think they could make a great pairing.

I wasn’t promoting the trade, I was saying that I didn’t think what was posted above as a trade idea would be enough. Van will want young, NHL ready player(s) back for Bieksa.IMO
He is valued by the organization even if many on here don’t value him.
I would take him in a second, but not sure I would want to give up what I think it would take to get him.

He was by far the worst player in the San Jose series and I wouldn’t give up significant assets just because he’s a flavor of the month defenseman.
