It's not that he is declared healthy so he can and should be playing in the NHL. This is faulty logic. He is not playing like he did last year or pre-concussion. He is not playing the kind of game that is worthy of NHL playing time. The Leafs are winning games without him at moment. He needs to play the game properly in order to earn the time.
I watched a couple of games, and he looks timid out there. He doesn't look like the Gardiner that I watched pre-concussion. That Gardiner had this profound ability to just see every hole in the forecheck. He had the speed to completely ignore the backcheck and moved with a certain grace that only few players can really do. He is not doing that.
So it stands to reason then that if he's not doing the things that got him to the NHL than he shouldn't be playing in the NHL.
