Yesterday was a day where the Leafs weren't playing any hockey games, but they were still competing against other hockey teams, in a race to see who could make the
least stupid panic move most intelligent final adjustments to their roster. After about seventeen hours, silence was finally confirmed, as the Leafs completed two trades.

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.
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.

The trade deadline has come and gone, but with that said, the Leafs have managed to sneak in another move. This time, they've sent Korbinian Holzer to the Anaheim Ducks for Eric Brewer and a draft pick.
