TSN says Phaneuf signing all but done

This comes live off TV from Pierre McGuire and Gord Miller. Which, if true, means two things: 1. Oilers fans will change their taunts to “good luck next year without Huselius and Langkow” — Nos. 5 and 6 after Iginla, Regehr, Kiprusoff and Phaneuf in their Good Luck Next Year series — and, 2. We get to figure out what to do without Huselius and Langkow next year. Probably. Salary numbers to come, obviously, if this is even true. Plus, more visitors to this blog, since one in every two searches that end up here are for “dion phaneuf”. Thanks again, big buddy.

Not a bad effort through two periods in San Jose — and with the lines we all prefer! Bloggers behind the bench is obviously the next step.

And yeah, that’s three posts today. Get back up in your chair.

  1. Good luck next year without, um, Mark Smith?

  2. That is some good news (assuming a reasonable contract, of course).

    Good game, besides the last 2 minutes.

  3. cory sarich can be absolutely terrible sometimes, for a good defenseman…. bloggers behind the bench would rule. i’ll play jimmy canaryshirt and rub my chin into oblivion until daz lets me bring up tömi mäki….

    i need to find a new favorite baby flame, don’t i….

  4. Speaking of outsiders behind the bench…I was a bit shocked to see McGuire right on there… didn’t Dion remember to get a restraining order?
