Leafs fan coming in peace. I noticed the Gardiner/Gagner proposal and thought I'd give a Leafs perspective. To be honest, even if Bozak leaves as a UFA, we don't have an urgent need for another centre unless he's a cut above everyone else or he's a top 6 centre with size. If Bozak leaves, I'd assume Kadri would bump up to the 1st line and Grabovski would be able to return to the 2nd line. McClement would centre the 3rd line.
Plus, Gardiner is a big piece of our defense going forward and if he was moved, I'd assume it'd be for a top 6 centre with size (which everyone seems to be looking for...).
That's not to say I'm against having Gagner on the Leafs necessarily, but he'd be more of the same.
