Gunarsson would likely be the #5 dman in NY behind Girardi, Staal, McDonagh, Del Zotto.

And hell no to moving Stepan for Gunarrson. Step is a 22 year old up and coming two way center who just had 51 points this year playing consistant 2nd line minutes. He is going nowhere unless there is a significant upgrade involved.
I think his point was that Gunnarsson is a core piece to the Leafs D and he isn't going anywhere short of an overpayment ie Girardi or Stepan.
