Gunnarsson + 94 is what I'm hearing. I don't mind that actually. Gunnarsson should be a solid partner for Shatty.

Pretty solid deal. Jackman + Someone on the third pair then, Gunnarson should look good next to Shatty.

Don't really see what Armstrong is thinking as we now have a hole on the right side. We Still have Leopold, Jackman, Bouwmeester and Cole on the left. Now we added Gunner. Seems like a bad move unless there is a follow up trade coming.

Enjoy Gunnar, he's a solid top 4 guy... Apparently our GM couldn't see that

Gunnar can play both sides.

If this means Leopold gets traded then I'm happy.

Leopold and Cole are equally capable on the right side.

Bouwmeester - Pietrangelo
Gunnarsson - Shattenkirk
Jackman - Leopold/Cole

That's a pretty big improvement.

This feels like a steal to me. We wanted a match for Kirk, and we got him.

Or a free agent signing.

Cole can play the right side. Im thinking JBow - Petro Gunnar - Shatty Jackman - Cole, unless there is another move

It gets Jackman off the second pairing, and gives Shattenkirk a pretty damn solid partner. Cole is ready to take over full time in the top six, and he's capable of playing the right side.

Yeah, I think this is our partner for Shatty. I'll miss Roman, but I think this is a solid deal for us. Cole can play right side if needed, as can Leopold. Not sure about Gunnarson.

Polak is no slouch either.

Armstrong said he wanted a partner for Shatty. Gunnar fits in pretty well IMO.

Gunnarsson is not the same player he used to be, his hip injury has robbed him of his mobility, and he handles the puck like a grenade under pressure. On the plus side he can eat big minutes, and play well on the PK.

What is the book on Polak?

Very big, strong, and fast. Tremendous athlete who is very strong positionally on defense. However, he lacks the ability to make the first pass. He has a rocket of a shot that is about as accurate as Fulton Reeds.

A robot of absorbing pain. Not a whole lot of puck skill but he's still a pretty good dman.
