Dion Phaneuf And Brendan Shanahan Have A Chat

from Lance Hornby of the Toronto Sun,

“I’m not going to get into details, but we had a good meeting,” a cheery Phaneuf said Thursday, chatting with reporters after an informal team skate. “It was good to spend some time with him and have a conversation both ways.

“I’m looking forward to working for Brendan. He’s done a lot for the game, he’s been around a long time and he’s a big addition to our team.”

Phaneuf, who turns 30 the day before Toronto’s last regular season game against the Canadiens, will benefit from the presence of the 37-year-old Robidas. Newcomers Daniel Winnik and David Booth are also right around Phaneuf’s age.

“We brought in some guys with experience, veterans who will help not only on the ice but in the room,” Phaneuf said. “They’re excited to be here and we’re excited to have them.

“Robidas and Polak are experienced, Booth has played a lot of hockey, Leo coming back was a big piece of our team a couple of years ago. With experience comes leadership.”
