Value of the OP's package, i.e. short-term UFA rights to a perenially injured D and RFA rights (assuming he's not UFA in a new CBA) a soft C that is not in a good team's top 6, and cant handle bottom 6? I think I may have a used Tic Tac in my couch cushions. Deal?

Whitney doesn't have much value as he is UFA. He might get you a 4th if he got traded early. Teams looking for a #3 type defenseman might give you a 3rd if they feel they can sign him.
In response to ^ , I agree with the below. Rundblad was one of the hottest prospects in the league at the time he was traded, and the 2nd was not exactly a low one. No way Gagner gets that if traded, because on any team where he is realistically one of their top 2 centers is not a good enough team that could afford to trade away that level of prospect and what would be a high 2nd, especially not in such a deep draft.
