It's not that the Leafs don't value Kulie or Gunnar, it's that with the cap dropping so steeply, teams may be willing to overpay for players on good contracts.

As much as people have been lamenting Burke and the players he's brought in, he's put us in a great position to be able to broker trades. We have some cap space, and good contracts for both welfare teams (Komisarek, Connolly) and rich teams (Gunnarsson, Bozak, Kulemin, Reimer).
