People really overrate picks on here. Take a look at the last 10 years 7th overall pick and then compare it to Gardiner. There is no way you are getting a player like Gardiner for the 7th pick. Absolutely zero chance.
I am a Leaf fan but sorry man, the 7th overall pick is usually a pretty good player, let's look at the last few seventh overall picks.

2012- Mathew Dumba
2011- Mark Scheifele
2010- Jeff Skinner
2009- Nazem Kadri
2008- Colin Wilson
2007- Jakub Voracek
2006- Kyle Okposo
2005- Jack Skille
2004- Rostislav Olesz
2003- Ryan Suter
2002- Joffrey Lupul

Out of the whole group, there are only 2 busts in Skille and Olesz. If u draft 7th overall, you may have to wait some years, but you will most likely get a great player.
