I would think;
Gunnarson + 2nd (conditional if he re-signs with TO)
That is something I could possible get behind with a little tweaking, I've only seen Gunnarson play once so I'm not sure how good he really is (the way most leaf fans talk about him it would seem he's the Robin to Phanuef's Batman of the leafs).
As for the original trade; the wings have ZERO need for another puck moving dman. Right now we only have 1 Defensive dman on the team, everyone else is either a PMD or an offensive dman. I don't even think I'd trade Filppula for Liles if we did need a PMD as Liles isn't very effective in his own zone.
As of right now Filppula fills a role for the wings that nobody else on the team can, he can either be a top 6 winger or if injuries roll around play in a 3C role. Value wise imo it's Filppula >> Liles and a 3rd doesn't make up the difference.
