Leafs Trade Carl Gunnarsson For Roman Polak

Seriously.

Yes, it's true. The Leafs have sent Carl Gunnarsson AND the 94th overall pick to the St. Louis Blues for Roman Polak. Whatever goodwill Dave Nonis garnered over the past 24 hours is now gone, and we can only hope that he is fired soon.

Polak is older than Gunnarsson, about $350k cheaper, and struggled with softer competition on St. Louis' bottom pair.

Here is his HockeyDB pageHere is his Capgeek pageHere is a look at his numbers at BtN.

UPDATE: It gets worse.

I'll turn to Twitter for initial reaction and add further analysis later:
