Ah yes that is quite steep.

I would be willing to trade Gardiner, but not that much on top of Gardiner. Schneider's a great goalie but Gardiner looks to be a great defenseman if his past season was any indication.

And to clarify, I don't think Lupul has astronomical value or anything. His pending UFA status and injury history definitely lessen it. The issue I have is Lupul's importance to Toronto.
