There are always 4 or 5 untouchables in Toronto every year and usually 2 or 3 wind up demoted or traded by the same time next year. Sometimes its okay to take a 'risk' and trade for proven young players. Lets have a little levity here. Before you bring up the glass houses thing, there are overzealous fans in every city - but the big 3 or 4 aren't dropping off EDM's list any time soon.

I wouldn't trade for Gardiner unless it was an underpay. Nothing personal.
Hyperbole doesn't prove a point, it just makes your point seem silly. Toronto doesn't trade our top forward prospect plus what will most likely be a good first round pick for a player who would be redundant in our system. We lack top end forwards. We do not lack good potential offensive D-men. Pretty simple.
