Believe it or not, Gardiner actually does have #1 D potential, I don't think he'll reach it, but the potential is quite obviously there, He is 6'2 and 175lbs, it's quite easy to say if he adds 25lbs onto his frame over 2-3 years, he'll be a pretty damn good dman.
I'm sure Gardiner does have #1 D potential, but right now that's all it is. He's just like Matt Carle right now, strong offensivly, weak on defense. So this doesn't meet the Flyers needs at all. IMO Couturier will only be moved in a package for a proven #1 d-man.
