Gardiner could demand a premium to a young and upcoming team that needs a PMD. I like than chances of Nonis getting significant assets back instead of Leafs having Percy, Rielly, Nilsson, Finn all smallish D moving fwd.
Someone will likely be traded from this group, Nonis already identified D prospects depth as an area we can move to shore up other areas on the team.
Although I agree with this, I wouldn't trade Gardiner because of our smallish D. Gardiner is 6,2 and I think he'll be an extremely important component to our team for years to come I love his puck moving ability and power play quarter backing, his skill is so entertaining to watch. Although we need a nice centre its so nice to have Phaneuf paired with Reilly and/or Gardiner and Holzer or another physical D man with one of Reilly or Gardiner in our top 4 D. It provides such a balance.
