09:45 AM ET 12.08 | The Dion Phaneuf haters -- a group I cannot relate to -- won't like this. But the worse the Maple Leafs defense plays, the more leverage Phaneuf has in contract negotations with the Leafs. The question is no longer will they sign Phaneuf. They have to sign him; the question is, for how much and how long.

Please, please, please sign him Davey.

I'm thinkin' 10 mil per for 10 years.

He's right where he belongs.

Snow on the ground, gifts under the tree, the Leafs desperate and panicky, all signs of a wonderful Christmas. God bless us everyone!!!

This season the Leafs made it all the way to early December before hitting the panic button. In TO this indicates improvement.

Dion ain't staying unless he takes a cut or Nonis is far dumber than we have been led to believe.

Who was his mentor again?

TO's destined for more of mediocrity if they do indeed sign him.

Which will make Canuck extremely happy.
