These are the facts:
Del Zotto has a cap-hit of $2.55 million. Gardiner 875K.
Both are RFAs this summer. It will be Gardiner's second contract, so he won't be able to command as much as Del Zotto.
Del Zotto is controllable for two more seasons, Gardiner four.
Given all that, Del Zotto would have to be playing a lot better than Gardiner to be worth more, let alone a first as well (again, lolz).
But he isn't. Gardiner is the best possession defenseman on the Leafs and he's not getting babies with offensive zone starts like Del Zotto.
