You could argue that the leafs didn't trade away Seguin and Hamilton and Knight for Kessel, they traded away draft picks so that's irrelevant. Hockey is a cause and effect situation. We gave up draft picks
we needed to trade to get prospects back. You could argue that Gardiner is a replacement for Hamilton since the reason we traded for him was because we didn't have draft picks in our system.
Besides, with Matt Finn also in the system, Leafs already have the potential to be Rangers-good
