Leafs Nation Angry At Dion?


Well this happened quicker than I thought...

I haven't hid my displeasure towards Daz and all his decisions since trading Phaneuf back in January.  I also haven't hid my displeasure regarding the Phaneuf trade itself.  While trading Phaneuf wasn't my beef, the trade and return itself I thought was not exactly what the market would of yielded for the defencemen.  Anyhow, I find the fact that the fans are booing Dion and Brian Burke is already having to step and defend the guy quite humorous.  First of all, what did Leafs Nation think they were getting?  Second of all, what possesed them to name this guy captain?  Flames fans know all too well with this guy that jersey sales and popularity don't necessarily equal excellence and efficiency on the ice.  So even though I may not be thrilled with what remains of Dion Phaneuf on the Flames roster....I get enjoyment that Leafs fans are already scratching their heads like we all were a year ago.
