The Toronto Maple Leafs shocked the hockey world on Tuesday morning, pulling off a surprising nine-player deal with the Ottawa Senators that centered around veteran defenseman Dion Phaneuf being sent to Canada's capital.

After the deal was made official, shock waves shook the Internet, as the Maple Leafs front office proved that no contract is untradable.

Here's how the worldwide web reacted to the gargantuan trade:

Phaneuf, who had been with the Maple Leafs since 2009-10 after coming over in a trade from the Calgary Flames, comes to Ottawa with a $7-million cap hit through the end of the 2020-21 season.
