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
Ignoring what the draft picks ended up makes about as much as sense as ignoring the fact that Kessel has been a very good player. And if you're counting on Matt Finn to make your defense "Rangers-good" I'd advise you to tone down your expectations. After all, Matt Finn and Stuart Percy aren't bluechip prospects like Dougie Hamilton and Morgan Rielly.
