According to tsn, white has posted the almost the numbers as phaneuf although calgary is getting him for a fraction of the cost. which is good for calgary. they will get some offensive firepower for now while toronto will still need another year to get the wheels going again and in a spot to be in playoff contention.
Burke has always been a huge fan of Phaneuf. I can remember when a reporter at a draft asked him , "Ovechkin or Crosby?". He answered, "Phaneuf.".
He is a great hockey player having a bad year, make no mistake Calgary wins the trade right now, but Toronto got the best player.
Sam Pollock (aka the best gm in the history of the job...not debatable as he won the most cups) once said it best, "He who gets the best player wins the trade, no matter what the price."
As far as another year, i think it will take way longer than that to fix, but the leafs took the right steps. They do not have too much money left to sign 10 forwards, which will make Burke's job next to impossible. You never know anymore though, did anyone think Buffalo was going to be as good as they are this year?
