That's a little weird to say considering Gardiner has spent the year in the AHL on a worse team than the Sens and Wiercioch is playing a pretty big role on a better team than the Leafs. But ok
That's a little weird to say without pointing out Gardiner had a concussion. But ok.
You'd think a fans of a team decimated with injuries wouldn't be so narrow-minded when discussing players that have recovered from them. But I guess they are determined to remain uneducated about the situation. Carry on.
We really can`t tell. The reality is that while different players, their upside is likely not that different. I might remind people that Gardiner was not highly though of until recently. On the other hand Wiercioch was highly thought of, but had to put on weight to realize those expectations.
