Gardiner has a ton of tools and is further along in development to boot than Monahan or Horvat. You have to realize that when you want to trade Gards for one of these picks, there's a huge draft day markup and hype you're buying into. Strictly from a prospect point of view, you probably think Horvat is a better investment than a Radek Faksa or something like that. Why? Because Faksa doesn't have his draft day sizzle anymore.
This is just plain wrong. Schenn is everything the Leafs are lacking right now. The Leafs chose to give up a lot of talent on D for a lot of talent offensively (with size that they also lacked).
