Here's what we know when it comes to a potential Dion Phaneuf deal.
- Detroit and two unnamed Western Conference teams are at the very least interested in Phaneuf's services.
- The Red Wings appear to be the front runner, but want the Toronto Maple Leafs to retain as much as $2M of Phaneuf's salary for the remaining six years of the deal.
- As it stands right now, Detroit doesn't like the Leafs' high asking price.
Earlier, we saw that TSN and Sportsnet were putting out very different reports on the likelihood of Phaneuf being dealt today. Now, ESPN and TVA Sports is jumping into the conversation. More past the jump...

TSN just a poor mans TMZ. Embarrassing.— Joffrey Lupul (@JLupul) March 2, 2015
The NHL trade deadline is a stressful time for NHL players, particularly players like Toronto Maple Leafs winger Joffrey Lupul. Lupul has heard his name bandied about in trade rumours for months, and chatter is only expected to increase this afternoon.

The Leafs are kicking a lot of tires today. Pretty much anybody is at play, whether you're a soon to be UFA fourth liner or a top liner. As such, people are discussing ways to maximize value in the next three or four hours. Salary retention has been increasingly discussed.
