The Big D, Dion PhaneufPublished by Toronto Mike on February 1, 2006 @ 16:51 in Hockey Canada, Sports
Team Canada's blue line has injury issues. Ed Jovanovski is a no-go and Scott Niedermayer may have to withdraw as well. When the team was announced back in December, I proposed adding another defenseman outright. I wanted Dion Phaneuf in Turin.
I hope The Great One realizes the time is now for this exceptional youngster. Team Canada will be a stronger force with Phaneuf than without him.
