No, it's not.

Value wise, it's: a career mediocre backup who had one elite season playing behind a strong defensive team and a third liner who is a healthy scratch for a blue-chip defensive prospect that lead rookie D-scoring last year, only playing in the minors because of a log-jam at defense and, previously, a concussion (which he has already recovered from).

Elliott would not displace Reimer or Scrivens.

D'Agostini would not displace Kessel, Lupul, JvR, Frattin, Kulemin, Komarov or MacArthur.

And if the Leafs wouldn't trade Gardiner for Luongo, they won't be trading him for a bunch of mediocre players.
