Personally I don't get why RC is disliking Gardiner. Maybe it is because he too was a mobile D man and expects him to preform to a different level than the others. That being said if were not playing him why not just left him with the Marlies to go on a playoff run with them?
I believe Gardiner has 2 games left in the NHL before he cannot be sent back down before going through waivers. I really don't understand this. Either you play him and accept the growing pains or send him back down before you burn those last few games. Eakins said it himself, Gards has nothing left to prove at the AHL level. It's a mistake having him sit in the pressbox over a career AHLer who's clearly in over his head. There's a reason why Kostka never stuck in the NHL prior to this season.
