He'll leave a mark on your good young players well after he's gone, he'll show them how to get to an elite level.

I understand not wanting to trade Gardiner, I wouldn't either. I don't understand the take it or leave it attitude or the lack of urgency. This guy will do more for your franchise then any one of those young guys will, unless Gardiner really turns into that franchise defensemen.
For me it's not take it or leave it. It's here is as high ad i'm willing to go. Unfortunately my highest doesn't seem to be near good enough...so that's it i guess. As far as Gardiner...there have been guys who have compared him to Niedermeyer....guess what one of the black marks on the Leafs past is...yup, trading the pick that ends up being Niedermeyer.
