I get the people saying they don't want Gardiner traded, but this is the reason why the Leafs have stockpiled defensemen within the organization. It's about dealing away depth for a much needed position. Both Gardiner and O'Reilly are great young players, and this could be a deal that benefits both teams like the JVR trade.

Of course Gardiner shouldn't be considered expendable, but with Phaneuf, Liles, Franson, Rielly, Finn and Percy in the organization I don't think it would hurt the Leafs all that much to lose him.

^ great minds think alike.
