    Maple Leafs' Dion Phaneuf: Impresses general manager

    Phaneuf has left general manager Lou Lamoriello "extremely impressed" by his contributions on the ice and off, reports Sportsnet.ca. Phaneuf has become far steadier under coach Mike Babcock. His minutes are down from last season and Babcock's structured system has helped him limit his mistakes. Phaneuf has just two assists in his last 10 games, but 22 in 48 on the season. Still, the tide is turning a little and Morgan Rielly is taking on more power-play responsibility. Big Dion's value to season's end is on a slippery slope if Rielly's ascension continues. Trade now or forever hold your peace.

    Maple Leafs' Dion Phaneuf: Slow and steady production

    Phaneuf netted his third goal of the season, picked up two minor penalties and laid five hits in Wednesday's win over Pittsburgh. He and Sidney Crosby are like oil and water and that career-long feud continued Wednesday. Those two just do not get along and they got into several shoving matches. That aside, Phaneuf is on pace to deliver a low-40s point total this season and that would be one of his best as a Leaf. There's value in that in most formats, but it'll come in a slow and steady trickle.

    Maple Leafs' Dion Phaneuf: Provides assist in second consecutive game

    Phaneuf picked up an assist on the power play in Tuesday's 3-2 loss to Arizona. The assist made it two straight games with a point for Phaneuf, who is enjoying a resurgence under new coach Mike Babcock. Over 2013-14 and 2014-15, Phaneuf scored 60 points in 150 games (0.4 points per game), but has scored 18 points in 33 games (0.55 points per game) this season. Despite playing on a bad team, Phaneuf is still a solid fantasy play, especially in leagues that award points for hits.

    Maple Leafs' Dion Phaneuf: Three-game, four-point scoring streak

    Phaneuf picked up a power-play assist Monday and in doing so stretched his current point streak to three games and four points, all assists. That's 15 points, including 13 assists, in 24 games this season. His shooting percentage (3.8 percent) is below his career mark (5.8 percent), so we expect Phaneuf to start scoring a few more goals. He last hit double-digits in goals in 2011-12 (12).

    Maple Leafs' Dion Phaneuf: Two more assists for much-maligned defender

    Phaneuf picked up another two points via assists in Saturday's 4-2 loss to the Capitals. He now has 14 points in 23 games for one of his better offensive starts in recent, If he can stay healthy and continue to perform, Phaneuf can actually deliver about 40 points. And that's close to his best as a Leaf. He's a fine activation right now.

    Maple Leafs' Dion Phaneuf: Gets goal and assist

    Phaneuf scored a goal and added an assist in Sunday's 4-3 loss to the Rangers. The points were his first in five games. Don't look now, but Phaneuf is actually on a 50-point pace. Where the heck did that come from? He hasn't performed this well in close to a decade, so take full advantage.

    Maple Leafs' Dion Phaneuf: Dealing with flu

    Phaneuf came down with the flu but is traveling with the team on their road trip, Jonas Siegel of TSN Radio 1050 reports. The team didn't release any further update on his status, and although he was able to skate for 26:15 worth of ice time in Saturday's loss, it's possible the illness forces Phaneuf to miss Tuesday's contest against the Stars. There should be more clarity on the situation prior to puck drop Tuesday.

    Maple Leafs' Dion Phaneuf: Resurrecting reputation under coach Mike Babcock

    Phaneuf picked up his eighth assist of the season in Wednesday's loss to Winnipeg. He has eight points in 12 games this season and that puts him a tie for the team lead in points. Phaneuf is being used effectively this season by coach Mike Babcock and it's paying off in spades. He doesn't have to line up against the opposition's best players, so the pressure is off and that gives him some time and space to actually deliver offence. And Phaneuf is delivering at a mid-50s pace. Yes, you read that right.
