Stastny is still our #1 center, and we value him as such. And don't try to use the contract as an
excuse, since we are not bothered by it. If you want Stastny, you have to pay what we value him as. Gardiner stepped in to the NHL and had one good and now Leaf fans are hailing him as some sort of sure thing that is absolutely
untouchable. Excuse me if I need
to see more than 1 year before I jump on the Gardiner is Awsome bandwagon. Do you know how many players had great rookie seasons and then terrible second ones? Again, go look at Luke Schenn. Remember when he was being hailed by Leaf fans as a #1 shutdown defensman who would be an absolute beast? What makes you think your entirely unproven young defensman who had one good year is worth more than our #1 center?
