You mean the season didn’t end at the trade deadline? There are still 19 games to play? There’s one tonight?

You know the drill, it’s a Tuesday night game against Florida so you can rest easy Tank Nation, the loss should be automatic.

The Tim Erixon era will be starting tonight, but it looks like Eric Brewer and Joakim Lindstrom as of now have gone unclaimed on the baggage carousel and won’t be in the lineup until Thursday. So sit back, relax, and wonder how the NHL managed to schedule a 10 game night with only one compelling matchup that isn’t even on until this game is over.

Sounds like the Leafs were looking for a king's ransom if they were going to part with Dion Phaneuf.

According to Sportsnet's Nick Kypreos, a Phaneuf-to-Detroit deal could have fallen through based on Toronto's high asking price; one that included Red Wings top prospect Anthony Mantha.

From Kypreos:

My understanding was that Phaneuf's only team that he had on a list that was manageable to be moved was the Detroit Red Wings, and I think they could have had a deal done today. I really believe that Brendan Shanahan and Dave Nonis could have had a deal done today, with money in and money out, but here's the problem - the price was too high. My understanding was the player that the Leafs wanted was Anthony Mantha, and that was not happening.
