If that was the thinking then why not trade Gardiner for a young forward instead of a draft pick.

I don't understand the idea of getting rid of an NHL ready defensemen with value like that to pick up a draft pick unless you're getting a true franchise player with that pick (which we won't). That only makes sense if the leafs were scrapping the current setup and doing a rebuild.
