The only way I'd do Gards for the 11th is if we could flip it with our pick for the 5th pick. Obtaining a high end center prospect is really the only reason I'd move Gards at this point.
Gards value around these boards has taken a hit because there are too many impatient Leaf fans ready to throw him into any proposal. Once he physically matures a bit, with his high hockey IQ, amazing skating and great release, he'll be highly sought after and Uncle Randy will happily find room for him in our lineup.
