I'd take OEL, but that's not saying much since I'd take OEL over A LOT of Dmen
I could be wrong, cause I barely catch Leafs games, and I do get to watch a decent amount of Coyotes games....but how in the heck does Gardiner have a higher offensive upside than OEL? In my opinion, OEL has one of the best slapshots in the game from the point, as well as a deadly wrister. His on-ice awareness is top notch as well. Then you add in his defensive ability, and the fact that he can throw hits...I just don't see a comparison, offensively or defensively. Again, I could be wrong, cause on have only seen him play against the Flyers and YouTube videos, but I just don't see it...at all.
