Sorry to disapoint you guys!

He may turn out a bit better than Aulie, but there's a reason why he's not up here. And he may look great in the AHL but in the NHL he will not look as good.

I'm still confident that Gunnarson is going to be traded though. He is the perfect type of player that other teams will want (considering his play, salary cap etc.)
Why would you say that he's not going to be good in the NHL? He plays a stay at home, defensive game and is good physically and has good mobility. He won't be a star, but he should be a reliable bottom 4 defenseman.

He has played well in all the high level competition that he's played in. He was a top defenseman for Germany at the Olympics and World Championships and looked good for the Leafs last year in his two games and in preseason.

So please tell me why he won't be good in the NHL.
