What's Going On With Dion Phaneuf and the Detroit Red Wings?

We're getting conflicting reports from Sportsnet and TSN, but nonetheless, there's a lot of talk around the Toronto Maple Leafs' Dion Phaneuf.

Not long ago, Sportsnet's John Shannon reported that the Detroit Red Wings have no interest in Dion Phaneuf at this time, throwing a whole bunch of cold water on TSN's Darren Dreger's earlier reports that Detroit and two other teams had talked to the Leafs about their captain.

From Shannon:

Wishful thinking from maple Leafs fans that Dion Phaneuf was going out of town. If the thought was that he's going to Detroit, he's not going to Detroit. There is at this point no way that Dion Phaneuf is going to be a Detroit Red Wing. It certainly looks like that right now.

Now, Dreger is back with an update, and he's not ready to concede. Apparently, Dion-to-Detroit is still very much a possibility. More after the jump!

It seems like the talks around Phaneuf have really been elevated over the last week, with the Wings being thrown out there a few times as potential suitors. TSN's Bob McKenzie indicated yesterday evening that Detroit has had some internal discussions about pursuing the Leafs' Phaneuf and/or Lupul, though the Erik Cole trade obviously takes them out of the picture on Lupul.

You know what? If you're scrolling by this article right now, pausing, and saying "holy ****, the Leafs played tonight?", I don't blame you at all. First off, it's Sunday, which makes it weird enough to see the Leafs on TV. Secondly, does anybody even care anymore?

I don't think the Leafs do, as they've proven by getting shut out 4-0. No, seriously, tonight too.
