I'm not saying he was bad but there is some definate overvaluing IMO. He is to me, and fan of a different team, worth a 1st rounder around 10-15 this year or a proven 2b maybe 2a center on a team needing a D-man for this upcoming season. But I dont think that he is this untouchable figure that cant be had for a second overall pick.
Ok great you've said your piece.

I've watched him all season and he is a very special player. Carlyle said so, Wilson said so, analysts all said so and compares him to Niedermeyer and Coffey. He's a special player. It's scary to think that Gardiner only got his confidence offensively at the all star break and after that he produced at a 45 point pace.
