Safe to say that's a crappy deal for us.
High and mighty Avs fan.
Yes, he entered the NHL as an 18 year old 2nd round draft pick, and you're trying to use that against him???
s You just lost a lot of credibility. Where was Gardiner as an 18 year old....So, you're telling me Gardiner could turn into Scott Niedermayer? Yes, I can see where the problem is. I'm glad you think he will actually be that good. You'll probably be very disappointed. I see him as a #2 defensman with excellent skating ability who can move the puck. But if you wish to believe he can be Niedermayer, our discussion is at an end, since I don't think he will ever approach that. Mighty gutsy of you comparing Gardiner, after 1 year, to a player who won 4 stanley cups, a Norris, Conn Smyth, Olympic gold, World championship, Memorial cup, and WJ championship. In fact, he is the only player in history to do that. You just compared Gardiner to one of the greatest defensman of all time...and you expect me to believe you?? Yeah, I'm done talking to you. You think Gardiner can turn into that? You'll be lucky if he ever accomplishes half of what Niedermayer did. What a joke. And you're calling me the high and mighty one? Delusions of grandeur....
