Hard to gauge his value. Fairly underrated guy.

Does everything well but doesn't excel in one area. Moves the puck well, good defensively, good skater and good positioning. I think he could be a good #2 PP option but hasn't had much chance in Toronto to do so.

It really depends on what the Jets would be willing to let go I suppose.

Toronto has a ton of depth players so the only kids of moves we would make are the ones where we bundle up a bunch of solid guys for a more star like player.

Not happening except for ridiculous overpayment. Hes our most steady D. And we're actually short on proven NHL quality D.

I as a Leaf fan would be down with this or something like it.

I'm not quite sure how to gauge either player's value, though. I'm not nearly as high on Gunnar as most, and Little's a bit of an enigma. I also don't watch the Jets as much as I'd like to.

Gunnarsson plays a reliable defensive game and leafs need more of that. I think he would only go with a forward for and upgrade on himself or an upgrade down the middle. Any ideas?

I don't think we make good trading partners. Can't really think of anything that makes sense considering we need Gunnarsson so much and Winnipeg wouldn't be willing to part with the necessary piece(s).

His value is probably around a high 2nd and a good prospect, but that just doesn't make sense for Toronto right now. Maybe in a couple of years when our defensive prospects begin to filter into the big club.

That's the exact position the Jets are in and therefore I'm not sure there would be a deal made where both parties were satisfied.

Realistically, nothing you're going to offer. Gunnarsson is a PERFECT fit in Toronto, and as a result, we're going to value him higher than you will... especially since defence is a weaker part of our roster.

If you guys were to put Pavelec on the table, there would be some room, but beyond that... not much... and you're not going to put Pavelec on the table.

Give us some time as right now Gunnar is the only lead D I have any confidence in will play a solid defensive game.

Only D we have that plays every game. Not going to trade him as he's worth too much to us.

Leafs have zero reason to move Gunnarson and the asking price would be way more then what the Jets would be willing to give
