Additionally if you think about the system and style the Leafs are playing, and will play going forward, ROR has greater potential value than Gardiner has ...

Gards had more value under the 'run and gun' with Wilson because it allowed him to wheel and freelance with the puck which is what he's awesome at .. ROR would probably be exposed more defensively in this style of system and probably doesn't have the offensive dynamic to be very impactful

On the other hand, in RC's system Gards isn't overly physical nor has he currently really filled out to be able to handle a tighter checking game .. Meanwhile ROR would excel in the cycle game and be a guy that can get to the net

I think it's a great fit personally
