If u guys are offering that for Gunnarsson, then I can almost undoubtedly say he will not get moved. He is worth much more than 3rd and Hagelin/Bourque.
Common misconception a lot of people have. Its actually a derogatory term like "Laughs" would be for the Leafs. I never understood how it caught on so quickly and how everyone uses it, but that's for another thread.

I totally understand your feeling with Gunnarsson. I think he is actually UNDERRATED by most around the league because of Schenn and Phaneuf on your back-end. He is a smooth skating puck-mover who has room to grow and develop still. I'm guessing that my offer and yours are on the (2) sides of the fence and that if a deal was done, it would be more somewhere in the middle. I just know that the Rangers wouldn't move Anisimov or Stepan.
