Leafs interested in Stamkos for 3rd rounder....
The articles are as bad as excuses fans make for Burke still not addressing the #1c role or finding a capable goalie after four years as GM.

He shouldn't get traded unless it's for a young #1C.

I don't think this decision is coming anytime soon, but I could see a Gardiner to EDM deal in the future.

Now that we have Reilly we have some flexibility in moving Gardiner for an elite 1C if the deal come to the table.

Not saying we should be shopping Gardiner but the interest has been there.

If you don't see Gardiner showing similar traits to Neids that's too bad for you... about time you stop down grading the Leaf youth is what I say.


We talk about people over hyping the Leaf youth frankly I don't see it, what I do see is a whole bunch of people media a like who degrade the Leaf youth none more than Kadri and it's getting tiresome.... People need to take a good hard look at what these 2 words "prospect/potential" mean before they get all bent out of shape about the comparison of who Gardiner's attributes and playing style remind other people of, get within the context of the conversation and leave the down grading to the side. Each and every person who has compared Gardiner to Neids are very aware that it's a high praise that more than likely wont come to fruition those who don't want to trade him want to see the kind of growth he has before trading him or even entertaining the thought of trading him. Did you expect Karlsson to have the type of year he had? You can't tell me that Gardiner doesn't show the same type of potential if Karlsson can explode like he did so could Gardiner and I for one wont trade Gardiner until we see a little more experience in him thus to me he's an untouchable at the very least for this coming season.

Burke is only taken out of context by a few people. Most fully understand him. Again, who's issue is that?

Who's down grading Gardiner and when did say i wanted him traded ?

The kid can skate and handles the puck with poise so all of sudden he now has Neids potential ? There's alot of kids who skate and handle the puck well and they also will never be close to a Neids level player . You know who else skate and handle the puck well , JML and Campbell but comparing Gards potential to them isn't good enough is it .

Do you know why fans in TO eat there young ? It's because of unreal expectations like these . The kid had a very good rookie year but there were major falws in his game that need to be improved before he even becomes a good D , never mind an all star or a potential HOF . Some fans did the same thing with Schenn after his rookie year and here we are 4 years later still wondering if he can become a solid defensive D . The sad part is some people never learn from past mistakes .

Burke reiterates trade talks end when Gardiner comes up: "This is a guy who is not going anywhere." #Leafs
