My mistake, he played 75 games last season, i thought it was more like 30.
Either way, is there a possibility that Komisarek / Franson play better than Gardiner? (yes, there is)
Gardiner just is not that well established yet. I like him, I think he will be a quality defenseman (maybe is still a thought in everyone's mind though)
There is no question though that filppula is better than your "average" second liner. My point is these 2 players are near same trade value NOW.
It is possible that BOTH increase their trade value in the next few years. (Filppula becomes a legit first liner, Gardiner becomes a legit top 2 defenseman - Neither of which has happened yet)
