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.
That's great and I will tell them the same thing I'm saying to you that they're wrong and overvaluing the play of Gunnarson. He's a good sound D men nothing more nothing less and this team needs "more" on the top pairing next to Phaneuf to have what is needed to become a contender he's not a top pairing D men to be held so high... If he could be flipped in a similar trade like Schenn was Burke would be stupid not to do it to fill a void somewhere else if not in a package trade to up grade his spot next to Phaneuf.
