These two comments pretty much sum up the intellectual prowess of the Flyers' fans comments in this thread. Gardiner was third in ice time on D, played PP and PK, and had the best +/- of any of the Leafs' regular D-men AS A ROOKIE. But I guess he does suck and has #2 pairing upside and can't play defense .

This whole argument is moot anyways because I don't think the Leafs have any intentions of trading Gardiner, since him and Rielly are our future on the blueline. Not to mention if he was traded for a center that would leave a big hole on our D.

And FWIW (not too much), Gardiner is out-scoring Couturier and has a better +/- so far this season in the AHL. Is that also because he's playing tough minutes and has bad linemates and ran out of his favourite cereal at breakfast?
