Unless the scouts are sure of the talent at #7, I would be very hesitant of trading gardiner. He is a second pairing defensemen with definite first pairing upside. High ceiling, high floor. He has shown he can play in the nhl level. He was our second best D last year, the best D in the marlies, and our best defenseman in the playoffs. He controlled the game and carlyle said he was elite offensively. He had a poor season but thats a combination of the sophomore slump + concussion.

I mean, this trade *could* be a good hockey trade but thats a lot of risk for us. Besides I am not really sure how much the oilers would benefit from a gardiner type D.
