Doesn't it piss you off?

Jake Gardiner is one of the best pure skaters in the league...and we have two pylons that can barely make a good pass or skate play above him.

I'm not seeing where it says anywhere that Jake Gardiner's unhappy.

It's his agent taking advantage of a bad Toronto loss where the PP was awful and posting a meaningless hashtag on twitter. Nothing more, nothing less.

This. It has nothing to do with Gardiner wanting a trade, being unhappy, etc.. he may be, but that's not what the tweets about.

Nah, it means free him from the AHL.

My guess is we either see A) Liles for a pick, B) Kostka for a pick, or C) Komisarek for a pick (plus salary retention) in the next short while. Holzer would be tough to move with his new contract extension because it sends a bad message (Why did we sign this guy to an extension if we don't want him) and because if he's being exposed, no one else would want his contract.

You should change the thread title to #FreeJakeGardiner

Amazing how every media hound just re-tweeted it insanely.

His agent only picked up on it because it was trending.

Not a fan of either team, but would a deal for Niederreiter make sense? IMO, similar value.

Uh, it's Bob McKenzie, it's what he does. It doesn't mean anything.

Corey Pronman (for example) uses hashtages like #FreeGaliev, #LetGooseLoose, etc all the time. There's not hidden meaning behind the tweets.

Never understood why the Avs signed Zanon on July 1st, it honestly boggles my mind.

Yeah, I know. I was saying that all those insiders know that this is nothing important but still re-tweet it, to make it seem like Gardiner is unhappy.

Sharks are doing the same thing with Jason Demers. Coach loves Douglas Murray for whatever ****ing reason.

I'm done with coaches around the league benching young, speedy puck-movers to play slow, over-the-hill "stay-at-home" defensemen.

His agent wouldn't tweet it for no reason, especially knowing how desperate Toronto media is for any sort of story. The motivation is simple, to draw attention to the fact that Gardiner, his client, is healthy and performing well and should be in the NHL. He wants him in the NHL on a professional level (He's good enough and didn't deserve to lose his NHL job due to injury) and a financial one (He makes a lot more money in the NHL). He's not doing it to get Twitter followers or people to retweet it, he's doing it to get his client back in the NHL.

At least Doug Murray is not a rookie.

Kostka and Holzer are 25+ years old and they both are rookies.

En fait, le message de l'agent de Jake Gardiner est : «Rappelez-le ou échangez-le. La AHL, c'est terminé.» #MapleLeafs

Nonis is very patient. He already warned us about this.
