Reports: Maple Leafs offering up Dion Phaneuf as trade bait

Reports form Sportsnet say the Maple Leafs are shopping captain Dion Phaneuf to Western Conference teams

There's word this morning that the Maple Leafs are shopping around team captain Dion Phaneuf.

According to Sportsnet's Nick Kypreos, the possible trade comes on the heels of a two-year extension for coach Randy Carlyle.

That is first big move made by the organization since Brendan Shanahan took over as president after another late-season collapse by the Leafs.

Phaneuf, who has been captain of the Maple Leafs since June 2010,  signed a seven-year, $49 million  contract extension with the team last December.

His extension doesn’t kick in until July 1st.

    Nonis should have been fired just on that contract alone.
