I'd argue that Gunnarsson is a defensive defenseman, while Percy is a two-way guy. However, neither of them have the size and strength or defensive ability/potential of either Holzer or Granberg. Either could likely fill the hole that Komisarek couldn't on the second/third pairing. Both guys project as a Nicklas Grossman-type of defenseman and I think having at least one of them will be good for the defense going forward.
