Jonas Brodin to Leafs

First off, I know he is pretty highly regarded by Minnesota but I would like to gauge his value.

so Wild fans, what would it take to pry him away? What would the Leafs need to overpay to get him in our system?

Brodin is the exact type of defender we need in our system.

Anyone outside Kessel, Phaneuf, and Rielly are untouchables.

Willing to give up attractive peices:
Jofferey Lupul - Put him on a line with Koivu and Parise, and he can use his body and work to open up space for them and can also score goals.
JVR - Most Leafs fans will be mad at me for giving up early but he is one of the few pieces I would trade for Brodin.
Kulemin - great two-way player, can be a gret 3rd liner and capable of playing well on the 2nd line, he can form a very strong top 9 for Wild.
Gardiner - Although he shows great promise, for Brodin, I wouldn't hesistate one bit trading him.
- he is just ripping up the AHL as Centre and doesn't look like a liability defensively anymore.

Of course, some of these need to be included in a package to get things on the path.

so what do say?
