Hands down, Letang is better than Gardiner.

But Gardiner is so much more controllable. He's got 1 year or 1.1M left on his entry level contract, and is going to probably get a $3M per year contract for 3-5 years. While Letang is an upgrade on Gardiner, he's also much more expensive in a salary cap. I don't think the Leafs need to be selling assets to upgrade a position that they have reasonable depth in (PMD in Gardiner and Rielly).
