Gardiner was included in the trade that sent Beauchemin to Anaheim becasue of that assessment, now the Ducks have egg on their faces.

Gardiner was deemed to have good skating ability but there were question marks around his hockey IQ and play with the puck.

Anyone who watched him play with the Leafs last season should know those concerns are completely erased with unexpected generous portions of talent.

Again, Schultz hasn't played a game in the NHL, Gardiner had a remarkable rookie season and is tearing it up in the AHL playoffs.
