Being asked a lot about Jake Gardiner. One of considerations is if he plays three more NHL games, he becomes eligible for waivers.

Basically once they bring Gardiner back, he's staying. This stretch of games with the Marlies will be his last as they'll never waive him.
Not to mention the guys currently playing with the roster, Fraser and Kostka, are no longer waiver exempt. They've both been playing really well so we're guaranteed to lose them for nothing, like we lost Aucoin to the Islanders, if we demote them. I suspect the Leafs will trade a d-man before bringing Gardiner back up, and then he'll be up for good, but there is no reason to rush him back at the moment. Likely casualties are Liles or Gunnarsson (imo)
