Gardiner is young. Gunnarson is playing like a seasoned vet.

the Leafs are honestly very fortunate that Gunnarson developed into a legit top 4 dman. He does everything right, now you hear this a lot but he actually does it. His offensive skill is weighed down by his dedication to defense and the solid positioning and work he puts in digging the puck out of problem areas.

His hand eye coordination is outstanding. He could easily play other sports. Or forward. His passing is very underrated. He has gotten stronger physically so you notice now when he takes the body on his man or clears someone that is harassing the goalie. He has always done it tho. He has played this solidly for a long time. He is our Seidenberg. Big minutes, without the big plays. Every good team needs a dman like him. We got lucky.
