The Toronto Maple Leafs have traded their Captain Dion Phaneuf to the Ottawa Senators in a 9 player deal. Along with Phaneuf, the Leafs give up Matt Frattin, Casey Bailey, Ryan Rupert and Cody Donaghey. The Senators are sending Defenceman Jaded Cowen, forwards Colin Greening and Milan Michalek and Tobias Lindberg as well as a 2017 2nd round draft pick.
this move comes as a surprised, mostly due to the teams involved. No salary will be retained on either end of this deal. Pure hockey deal, so let's see what happens next. Regardless, the trade deadline has begun early and with a huge bang!
