Dion Phoneyneuf or Captain Pylon does it make a difference?

The season is just 10 games in and the attack dogs seem to have gotten loose and their primary target seems to be new Leafs captain Dion Phaneuf. The club looks to have come back down to reality after winning their first 4 games, the club has turned around and earned just one victory in their last six games played. This should not be a surprise to most but their lack of goal scoring is a tad disheartening.

This was not what Brian Burke had in mind when he acquired some key pieces to his puzzle over the last twelve months. The season is still early and another four game winning streak may quiet the attack dogs of Leafs Nation but this was always brewing for most fans, as many myself included feel that the team was a tad to quick in handing over the captain's C to newly acquired Dion Phaneuf.
