Dreger: Maple Leafs had no Phaneuf trade discussions since deadline; willing to listen to offers

It looks as though the Toronto Maple Leafs aren't necessarily seeking trading partners in order to jettison Dion Phaneuf, but it doesn't mean they won't listen to offers.

Contrary to earlier reports suggesting the Leafs were actively shopping their captain, the team hasn't had any discussions regarding Phaneuf since the trade deadline, but would be willing to listen to teams looking to acquire the veteran defenseman, according to TSN's Darren Dreger

The 29-year-old three-time All-Star, who signed a seven-year, $49-million contract in December, has seen his offensive production drop drastically during his tenure in Toronto, posting more than 10 goals and 40 points just once in five seasons in The Big Smoke.
