Value of: Matt "the Agile Beast" Hunwick

Matt Hunwick's playing lights out this year and he's an FA at the end of next one. Smart move by mgmt to get him sign him up for 2 years so that if he did play well which he has, we could get better value than if he was a pending UFA.

Now before seeing what we might get for him on the main board, I wanna know what you guys expect? A good D prospect like Trouba? A 2nd line winger who can play on the 1st? A #10-15 pick? We could re-sign him to an extension of course but it's gonna be $4 M+ and I just don't think we can afford that with a few pending contracts in 2014.

He only has 1 point during this season so far but the guy's playing 18-24 mins and is a +2 on this team. His mobility is not reflected on the stat sheet but on a better team with competent forwards, it would translate to more assists.

We'd also be losing a high IQ player as reflected by this thoughtful picture but have to get something back so I'm in favour of moving him before the draft:
