Our media is horrible. Why does no one ask good questions? Someone should have asked Carlyle straight up why is Gardiner not up with the big club yet? Since Eakins has said he's more than 100% and been producing. Also that Holzer among others have been struggling and the defense has been struggling to move the puck and create offense. Not to mention he was excellent last year and one of our most important players.
Why has no one asked this question? It is unacceptable that Gardiner is in the AHL right now while Holzer and Kostka are bubbling around derp derp herpdiderpitydoo. Like come on. Bring it up atleast, maybe Carlyle forgot Gardiner even exists? Media needs to bring it up to him.
Our media is in love with Kostka. You should hear Sportsnet talk about Kostka and his cinderrela story
Holzer has shown he's not ready for the NHL, send him down to the AHL to work on his game and bring up Gards this is getting kind of ridiculous. I get it's a numbers game but Holzer should be the one on the Marlies waiting for a spot to open up and not Jake. Gardiner has proven 10000x more than Holzer he belongs in the NHL.
Or waive Kostka, I'm sure a 6/7 defenceman finally breaking out at age 27 won't be a huge loss to us.
Struggles, I guess you haven't watched too many Leaf games. Gardiner struggling is better that most of our D playing up to their ablilty!! I guess the way he played in 75 games last year is not enough to give you confidence that he is here to stay?

Does anyone worry what John Tavares' waiver eligibility is?
For the record, this is why I think he is not being called up. I think he should be.
Waive kostka, seriously. Don't lose holzer just give him time he's a rookie. Holzer was doing great down in the AHL and eakins said he was more than ready, but once he's here a bunch of you don't think he's NHl material. Holzer is fine. Kostka doesn't bring anything special to the table.
I don't understand why he's not being called up. Gardiner>>>>>kostka
