Insight: Phaneuf is a former 60-point player but he hasn't reached those heights since 2007-08. These days, he's a 0.55 ppg player at best but that's still solid from the blue line as long as you can take the hit that comes with a minus-9.

Insight: Phaneuf had no goals and four assists with a (-6) in 11 games, so hopefully his stats will improve after his return from the leg laceration. Don't expect the struggling Leafs to hold back with his minutes upon his return.

Description: Leafs GM Brian Burke called the booing of Dion Phaneuf on Saturday at the Air Canada Centre "disgraceful." TSN
Insight: Burke commended Phaneuf for what he called a "culture change" to the Leafs' organization both on and off the ice. Fantasy-wise, Phaneuf has struggled with no goals, four assists, and a (-6) in ten games this season. However, Phaneuf's lack of scoring can be at least partially attributed to the lack of offensive weapons on the Leafs.
