Part of the problem of getting hemmed in is in due to Gunnarson being soft and not having the ability to skate out of trouble.

There's no forgetting at all nor am I caught up in flash frankly IMO your overvaluing him if you feel trading him for Berglund is something this organization can't afford to do.
This has nothing to do with how I feel about Phaneuf. Phaneuf is a good defenseman, with the potential to be better than Gunnar, but I don't think he was last year.

I'm certainly not the only poster on this board who believes Gunnar was the Leafs best defender last year, and some of those who believe he was are Phaneuf supporters.
