    But it was an easy decision for me to stay here and be part of the Toronto Maple Leafs. But it wasn’t until Saturday night on Episode 3 of “HBO 24/7 Red Wings/Maple Leafs: Road To The NHL Winter Classic” that we heard a Leafs executive spell out how close the sides are. Toronto Maple Leafs captain Dion Phaneuf on Tuesday signed a seven-year contract extension that will keep him with the team through the 2020-21 season. But his Leafs teammates and the Red Wings struggled to put together a fundamentally sound game early on as snow piled up on the ice. Phaneuf’s critics argue the Leafs didn’t need to fork over so much money and term to a blueliner who isn’t considered a perennial Norris Trophy candidate – and that the only reason the 28-year-old got this deal is because Toronto doesn’t have a top-pair D-man in the system – but Nonis quickly shot down those notions. Their options, in short: Let him walk as an unrestricted free agent, and spend the next several years looking for another Dion Phaneuf; attempt to move him at the deadline, remembering the last time he was traded it was for a bucket of spare parts and that no one is going to ante up for a pending UFA; or, of course, pay the man.
