Not really If Carlyle understands that Gardiner plays better when he plays more... Gardiner the way he skates can play 30 minutes at ease and if it's deemed that puck movement is the answer I kind of agree with sitting Lilies if he plays Gardiner extended minutes. This will allow Carlyle to now use O'Byrne as a PK specialist so Franson is protected a little from being in the position to block shots with that bruised foot.

NOW is the time to "FREE JAKE GARDINER" by playing the $hit out of him.

I'll go on to say if Reimer doesn't allow those goals that squeak through him like a leaky faucet at times and Gardiner plays 25 minutes or more the Leafs will win this game tonight.

In large part do to Gardiner being used the right way by giving him the green light to control the game from the back end. This is what Carlyle has taken away from Gardiner that has pissed me off... It's like Ottawa telling Karlsson to not play his game and force him to play a dumb down version of safety hockey. STUPID! STUPID! STUPID!
