The amount of hate that Jake Gardiner receives is hilarious and border line pathetic. He had a fantastic first year and has the makings to be a top 2 pairing defender. I don't get why @Chris Shafer you act like Gardiner is just another run of the mill defenseman. If Gardiner were playing anywhere other than Toronto, people would be marveling about his ability and how he's going to be a stud defenseman.

Honestly, if Simmonds were to be offered for Gardiner, I'd do it. As much as I love Simmonds and see him as a solid winger with 40 goal potential (let's not forget he potted 28 while getting third line minutes), Gardiner has top pairing potential. He's going to be real good.
