Jake Gardiner for top center
 
On TSN 690 this morning dreger states that the maple leafs will be all in at the draft and a name they are shopping is Jake Gardiner for a center they are targeting. Wasn't sure who but started discussing Edmontons willingness to make a splash as well and wondered if they'd be willing to move RNH

What the hell has gotten into Toronto?

PensBandwagonerNo272 06-27-2013 07:54 AM

I don't know what's up but Dreger has just been stirring the pot with random rumors lately. TSN must be pressuring him into doing so, because he and Bob used to only discuss concretely backed info.

Anyway, I don't need to be a "TSN insider" to know that there is no way in hell Edmonton would consider trading RNH in a deal based on Jake Gardiner.

Buckets and Gloves 06-27-2013 07:55 AM

You mean Gardiner++ for a top line center.

Jake the snake won't fetch a top line center on his lonesome... add this years 1st and a decent prospect/roster player

MRB 06-27-2013 07:55 AM

:naughty:I can not believe that the leafs are looking to trade a Dman for a centre

Agreed. It would have to be based around Reilly.

Also, why would Edmonton trade a center. I could understand if it was one of their wingers.

OneMoreAstronaut 06-27-2013 07:56 AM

I'm sure Edmonton would love to have no centers.

Marvelous Manked 06-27-2013 07:56 AM

Well if you're talking about RNH, it's going to cost quite a bit more than Gardiner IMO.

Gardiner to me lands a very good #2 or a below average #1 guy. That's just my opinion of course.

The way he worded it, it was hard to tell whether he was linking the two teams together or if he was stating seperately about Edmonton making a splash. It was all under the same breath when he was mentioning a name like Phaneuf to Edmonton could make sense.

Either way Gardiner is in play which seems beyond silly to me.

NugentHopkinsfan 06-27-2013 07:57 AM

why would the Oilers move RNH and be left with no top line C?

And what else would Toronto add to make that happen, RNH has the potential to score 100 points in the NHL, elite vision and passing and incredible defensive ability already. Just wait until he gets stronger he'll be a top 5 center in the league for many years. They can find their Jake Gardiner down the road no need to trade a guy they just picked first overall.

This is just Cousin Darren throwing **** out there again.

Either way, I feel comfortable rephrasing myself and saying: there is no way in hell RNH considers trading RNH period.

Yeah I agree. I listened to it as well and he didn't directly link the two teams to talking, just that it could possibly make sense being Edm is looking for a dman and Phaneuf is from Edmonton.

Should get interesting!!

Statsny
Gagner

Not exactly "top centers".

Toronto is better off to just keep Bozak, or look at Ribeiro or Weiss as a UFA.

RNH is actually beyond laughable. Dreger should be pretty ashamed of even throwing that out there. Silly.

Their strategy might have changed, Lecavalier just became available.

I'm with you on that one. Curious what Edmonton will do since he thinks they'll make a big splash aside from hemsky and horcoff

Glad someone else heard it. Phaneuf makes more sense to me

Dreger is an idiot, people should stop listening to him.

Really, Weiss is option for top-6 center? Stastny isn't? or Gagner for that matter.. Ribeiro would be good, but he's getting there in age.

That's why the speculation is wrong. That part at least.

If he'd named almost anyone else on the team, it might have a modicum of plausibility. Don't see any way RNH goes anywhere unless it's for an even better centre.

I understood that to mean that they're all in the same league, none of them first line centres, but that since Weiss and Ribeiro would come for free, they'd be smarter to go that route.

I like dreger when it comes to rumors not regarding the leafs, but when it comes to the leafs half the stuff he says sounds like it is being spread out for his cousins best interests and has been approved by the leafs themselves as something they want to throw out there. He gets the leafs scoops, and in return he will spread news/gossip/feelers approved by his cousin.

topchowda 06-27-2013 08:14 AM

Wont discuss trading RNH because I think he is next to untradeable. But like the poster above noted. Gardiner right now could land you a Statsny or Gagner, could very well change next year.

i'd take Stastny over Weiss easily

416Leafer 06-27-2013 08:15 AM

Gardiner for a top centre?

I would assume that means for a high pick with a chance to become a top centre... because Gardiner is not worth a proven top centre.

Valic 06-27-2013 08:18 AM

Gardner for Gagner makes some sense.

RNH for Gardner does not.
