I'm not saying you should trade Gardiner, but sometimes the opposite happens too. Burke could have trade Schenn and Kadri for Tavares-it might have ended up like the Kessel trade with the Leafs getting one solid piece, but losing two solid pieces. But in the end they missed out on a franchise player for two players who have underachieved since. Just because a team's been burned in the past(It was originally Vancouver's pick that was used to pick Milan Lucic
) doesn't mean one should never give up potential for something the roster needs badly.
And again, I'm not asking for Gardiner. I don't think he's as untouchable as everyone says he is, but I know that no good can come out of discussing it.
