Life is pretty awesome right now if you’re NHL defenseman Dion Phaneuf.
He’s captain of arguably the most relevant franchise in the hockey world, he’s married to a goddess in Elisha Cuthbert, and according to a report via Darren Dreger of TSN, he’s close to signing a lucrative extension with the Toronto Maple Leafs.
Aside from a couple of details, Phaneuf and the Leafs are very close on a 7 year, $7 mil per contract extension. Term was key. #tsn
