Dion Phaneuf Could Still Be Motor City Bound

At the trade deadline there were a number of rumors swirling about the possible trade of Dion Phaneuf.

One of the more intriguing teams interested in securing his talents were the Detroit Red wings, who eventually made a deal with the New Jersey Devils for defenseman Marek Zidlicky.

According the Ottawa Sun , the two teams will revisit the trade in the summer.

“With talks going nowhere, the belief is Wings’ GM Ken Holland felt it would be better for both sides if they revisited this trade in the off-season”.

No word yet on what the compensation would be for the current Toronto Maple Leafs’ Captain, but the Leafs are stockpiling draft picks and prospects.

If current Red Wings’ coach Mike Babcock does end up coming to the Leafs expect to see some surprising pieces come back.

Babcock will undoubtedly have players he feels strongly about even in the minor league system of the Red Wings.
