Christmas Special: Calgary Flames

Team Wishlist: Time Machine to go back and undo the Dion Phaneuf trade. Yes another time machine. Seems to be the "in" thing this year. Everyone wants the time machine to undo that mistake they did. The Flames are no different. The team give up Dion Phaneuf, Fredrik Sjostrom, and Keith Aulie to the Toronto Maple Leafs in exchange for Niklas Hagman, Ian White, and Jamal Mayers. Now go back to present day, what has that trade done? Mayers is in the Chicago Blackhawks, Hagman in the minors after being waived, and Ian White is playing for the Detroit Red Wings.

Now lets flip the spectrum. How has Toronto done, Phaneuf is the Captain of the historic team, Sjostrom is in Europe, and Aulie even though has been scratched in favour of Jake Gardiner is a 2nd Line Defenseman that should reach his potential. Worse comes to worse he's a third line defenseman. I'm not going to give you a conclousion. What do you think. Does Jay Feaster redo this trade?
