Jake Gardiner Unhappy?
 
Gardiner's agent, Ben Hankinson, just tweeted the following

It's going to get a lot of attention in a hurry, as Bob McKenzie just retweeted it.

uh oh, he is deservedly mad, but I dont know if it's the right way to go about it. Someone could get him for a nice price imo

bleedblue1223 03-12-2013 10:46 PM

Makes sense. Bet he was to be reunited with his brother Max in St. Louis. :sarcasm:

This is not good for Leafs. Asking for a trade?

Flowzak 03-12-2013 10:47 PM

Every Leaf fan wants the same thing. Carlyle/Nonis isn't doing anything about it.

Joey Moss 03-12-2013 10:47 PM

Come to Edmonton. :)

22 year old on his ELC unhappy? big deal

Rookie Chargers 03-12-2013 10:47 PM

Pro coach doesn't like his style. ;)

LiquidSnake* 03-12-2013 10:48 PM

Him wanting out lowers his trade value

Pi 03-12-2013 10:49 PM

He's not unhappy :laugh:

This is what we Leaf fans do when we're mad..we start trending #Free_____ (our top player rotting in the AHL).

He just picked up and retweeted it.

We did #FreeKadri...didn't work but hey! Ron Wilson got the axe.

Carlyle is playing two AHL'ers over Liles and Gardiner, team is losing and yet he persists.

Coldplay 03-12-2013 10:50 PM

There is zero reason he should be in the AHL. He was Toronto's best defenseman last season by a landslide.

Numbers 03-12-2013 10:50 PM

This will be Nonis excuse when he trades him for Luongo :sarcasm:

Grant 03-12-2013 10:50 PM

Leafs defense hasn't been playing well and he is sitting in the minors. Not that unexpected in my opinion.

Carlyle seems to like playing defense only on their strong side and currently he is apart of a group that includes Phaneuf, Gunnar, Fraser and Liles. We will see if Carlyle changes his view on that soon :crossfing

JurassicTunga 03-12-2013 10:51 PM

Kiprusoff for Gardiner

caley 03-12-2013 10:51 PM

No value to be raised or lowered...yet, as he hasn't asked for a trade. His AHL coach is thoroughly impressed with him, but this probably forces Toronto to make a decision on their d-core sooner than later.

I really don't expect Gardiner to be moved, but I do expect this will hasten another move soon.

Petro Points 03-12-2013 10:51 PM

Gardiner's decreased value ... Gagner's increased value...

make the swap now!!!!

NothingLikeAnEJ 03-12-2013 10:51 PM

Avs are doing the same stupid thing with Tyson Barrie. I don't get coaches and their love for slow ass useless defensemen (O'Byrne, Zanon, Kostka, etc).

Bieber fever 03-12-2013 10:52 PM

2nd for Gardiner

Zeroknowledge* 03-12-2013 10:52 PM

Too soft for NHL hockey, at least this current management team knows. Liles can contribute as much as him offensively while being soft and very average defensively yet he isn't playing.

boredmale 03-12-2013 10:53 PM

Any chance does he have the same agent as Nino Niederietter?

UFancyHuh 03-12-2013 10:53 PM

he means free him from the ahl... not from the leafs

He won't be going anywhere. Dallas Eakins plays him for 25-30 mins. Even Eakins agrees that Gardiner should be in the NHL but there is a numbers game..

Now that Kostka and Holzer are finally getting exposed...Gardiner better be on the team in the next week.

Kostka is a #4-6 on a good day that produces zero offense and decent D, Holzer is AHL material.

Man Bear Pig 03-12-2013 10:54 PM

He only has 3 games left in the NHL until he can't be sent back down IIRC. That's the only reason he's down.

Coldplay 03-12-2013 10:54 PM

Why the **** is Mike ****ing Kostka in the NHL and Jake Gardiner is in the NHL.

What the hell is wrong with that?

Holzer and Kostka haven't played all that great and the team has lost 3 in a row. Liles and Gardiner clearly need to be in this lineup. Kostka and Holzer vs Gardiner and Liles? not even close.
