Anybody with an ounce of reason knows Jake Gardiner isn't going to be as good as Scott Niedermayer. Thats not really a slight on Gardiner either. He was more than a 1D, franchise d-man, etc. Brindamour/O'Reilly is off, but not to the same extent.

Most audacious part of this thread, Leafs fans want arguably Colorado's most valuable player at this point, and generally have a list of untouchables. Give me a break...
Our only untouchables would be our Captain, our franchise winger and our top prospect (5th overall pick). O'Reilly is not worth a 5th overall which is why Rielly was not included, however we offered our next untouchable player, which was Gardiner, who was left out of deals for more elite, however older and high paid, players. Its not like we are offering lombardi or Komisarek, the offer is of legitimate value, however Avs homers feel a need to ask for the world.
