To the Leafs? Absolutely.

Gunnar's a solid #3/4 dman who's cheap as heck. Krejci's a solid #2 centre with a $5.5m contract. When the alternative to a 65-point centre in David Krejci is a 50 point centre in Tyler Bozak plus a potential .75 ppg centre in Connolly; and the alternative to Gunnarsson is a combination of Mike Komisarek, Cody Franson, Jake Gardiner, or John Michael Liles, it's quite easy to value Gunnarsson at or greater than Krejci.

Krejci? I'll buy that. Seidenberg? no. While it's not a huge difference between Gunnarsson and Seidenberg, Gunnar's certainly got the edge, plus he's a lot younger.
