Gunnar seems like a piece the Leafs could give up and get some value back but I'd be very worried about the consistency lost on the backend. Gardiner/Liles/Phaneuf/Franson are not carrying the mail for all 200ft like Gunnar does. Can Holzer slot in as a replacement? Has Gardiner developed a more well-rounded game?
If they're confident in signing Shultz, I'd be very ready to move Gunnar, but from what I know about Shultz is that he is a bit slight, and will likely (at best) show the same game Gardiner did last year...which had some holes defensively.
St. Louis seems like a logical partner...maybe something around Oshie?
