They won't sell low...
This...a thousand times this. If anyone thinks the Avs are in 'a pickle', this is exactly what would happen.

Leverage in contract negotiations
To force a trade

If and only if its the latter, which is a real possibility, then his value takes a huge hit.
See above. The Avs can easily match. There is no issue.

I'd love to see the thread where Avs fans are actually ASKING for Gardiner. (or ANY leafs at all?? We're happy with our team, sure we've got holes but they'll be addressed in due time...there's no rush.)
