Phaneuf Needs To Fight His Own Battles

from George Johnson of the Calgary Herald,

He’s a hitter. He’s a hunter. And physical presence remains an integral part of the game.

What is troublesome, though, and what has become a disturbing trend, is the big No. 3 stepping back, surveying the carnage he has wrought and letting someone else—the willing, but unfortunate Mark Giordano in this case—wade in to clean up the mess. To often unpleasant results.

As if he’s somehow above it all.
