Quick Shifts 2/16: Who Won The Dion Phaneuf/Marian Gaborik Trade? Well It Hard To Say

::Link to Streamable if YouTube doesn’t work::

On Tuesday night the Ottawa Senators sent Dion Phaneuf and Nate Thompson to Los Angeles in exchange for Marian Gaborik and Nick Shore. It is what can be best described as a lateral move for both teams. Phaneuf and Gaborik are essentially the same players at this point in their career just different position. Both of them are aging veterans who are still on contract for a few more seasons at not exactly the cheapest rate. No disrespect intended to either of them but I think the general consensus reaction to this trade was “uhhhhhh okay”. With that being said, both guys were able to find themselves on the scoresheet playing in their debut for their new squad last night so perhaps it will take a little more than 60 minutes to figure out who truly won this deal.
