Huge fan of Gardiner, but his concussion scares the living daylight out of me.

There are rumours that Stefan Elliott has one as well but there are conflicting reports about it. Siemens had a concussion and lost valuable development time last year.
That is just off the top of my head. There are probably a few more.
Avs need to stay away from guys with head injuries. We got enough of them.

Besides that I fully agree with the other Avs poster. I don't value Gardiner nearly as much as you do and would not like him straight up for ROR even if he was completely healthy and playing in the NHL right now.
Beaupre, EJ, Olver etc...
