Who's the better skater and puck handler? If Kulikov is better, I certainly hadn't noticed. Gardiner is a fine player that is having trouble fitting into Carlyle's system. The same system that a lot of good players have trouble with. If he was with a loosey-goosey coach, he'd be a star already.

If this rumour has any legs to it at all, it's a one for one swop. I'd bet on it. Same as the JVR-Schenn deal. Two players with great upside going somewhat stagnant on their teams.

They both have a long way to go in their development, and I'd guess if there is a deal to be made, it will be straight up. I'd be surprised if TOR gave up more then a 3rd on top of it. Either way, TOR isn't the only one sniffing around.
