Gunnarson is only playing on the top pairing with Phaneuf because the Leafs don't have any better options. He is ideally a solid, stay at home 2nd pairing guy which is what Nick Schultz is. Gunnarson is better but not by much and even that's questionable.
As far as value is concerned, i see Kulemin perhaps having slightly more value due to his durability and better 2 way game but Hemsky is superior offensively when he's at the top of his game, last year was an aberration for him.
Again, i would do this deal for the Oilers and i highly doubt that the Leafs do the deal but it's not a slam dunk in favor of the Oilers by any means.
This must be your first time in a Toronto trade proposal.
