It is easy to tell by the tone of your post that you feel Gardiner possesses significantly more value than Backlund, when in reality he has not proven to be a consistent NHL player either. I also fail to see how I took a shot at Gardiner.

I never said you did specifically, but it was mentioned in the thread.
It's a stretch to call Gardiner a top four defender at this point when he has not played at that level consistently.
