What don't you get...Gardiner IS NOT going to be traded for Luongo or be any part of a Luongo trade. I know you wish the more you mention it the better the chance of it actually happening but sorry to burst your bubble Gardiner is pretty much untouchable. Burke was adamant getting him in the Beauchemin trade along with Lupul. Burke drafted him and absolutely loves the kid. His potential is through the roof. I know you value Luongo very highly but at least be realistic with your trade ideas.
If Gillis was after Huberdeau from Florida, Gardiner would have to be the target in TO. If Burke goes after Lu and is successful, it won't be a comfortable, Leafs clearly win deal that doesn't unplug something of high quality. It's not being realistic. It's wishful to hope for a deal that doesn't give up anything of real value, but not realistic. Besides, regardless of the TO love affair with Gardiner, if he's your ticket to Lu, he's very much worth it. TO is a lost team without him. The other reason is because Gillis would much rather have a player he can use rather than a first round pick, and giving up a first in TO isn't cool anymore.
