Simply a pure guess on my part but suspecting Gardiner is being asked by Gillis..

Landing him would increase Vancouver's odds of landing Justin Schultz at the same time, due to his relationship with Jake and Justin being a BC boy.

So waiting out the Schultz destination might play a part in this situation, which after he is signed changes some of the parameters and allow for different Leaf players entering the trade picture thereafter.
