Would any Leafs' fans be happy with that package if the shoe was on the other foot? I doubt it. Gardiner is a good piece, but he is not a 'franchise' player. The Toronto 1st would have to have a ridiculous amount of luck to draft a franchise player with.

Teams need as much elite talent as possible to win championships, imo. Calgary will not trade that pick for all the owski's in the world if they end up with it after the season/lottery. The fanbase would revolt, and rightfully so. It would seriously take a ridiculous over-payment and it just wouldn't be worth it.
so true. this thread always pops up and no-one ever trades away the top-tier guys, do they?
