Gardiner +++ just isn't grounded in reality IMO. Assuming the pluses aren't Lombardi, Komisarek and Connolly.
Gillis would take that deal in a heart-beat. Gardiner for Luongo, and the Canucks eat those contracts of the other three. No way would Burke include Gardiner in any deal, unless Edler was coming back the other way.
