Gardiner was tremendous in the playoffs and has shown that he can be a top pairing defenceman. He is still only 22 years old and would fit in perfectly with the young core of the Edmonton Oilers. Now that Eakins is in Edmonton and the Maple Leafs are in a situation where they can/should make a big move to add a top notch young centre, this seems to be one of those situations that could potentially be a good fit.
Why in god's name would the Leafs trade Gardiner, with the hopes of drafting a player just as good hopefully. and waiting 4 years to see how this player turns out? Seriously?
