Gardiner's not playing for the leafs right now mostly due to roster issues. We already have 2 d-men sitting in the press box right now.
The guy got concussed, which basically screwed him out of a starting spot on the leafs roster. If he were to come in right now, at least one d-man would have to be traded off to make room for him. Also Carlyle and Eakins would have to agree that Gardiner's good to go. He's still young, and he still has things to work on.
We took time with bringing Kadri up, and it's worked out really well so far. Anyway you slice it, the Leafs are dramatically better than they were last season, despite Gardiner not being in the lineup.
