My god.There's people on the Leafs FB post questioning why we are sending him down after he scored the GWG. We're going to ruin his confidence!

I am not wearing my Leafs' mittens again, until Gardiner is called back up. Will I get frost bite?

If you are a Leaf fan you probably have plenty of experience picking your butt during games -- what else s there to do. They should be plenty warm there.

How in god's name is having Gardiner play a few games with the Marlies "burying him".

Maybe I'm just old and getting worse at detecting "trolling" but some of you can't be serious.

Chill bro that's all I was asking. Thanks for the clarification.

If anyone would like a really good time - go look at the TML Facebook page post about this.

You'll see such gems as, "send down Phaneuf and Gunnarsson." "Homosarek." and many others.

Liles has outplayed Gardiner. I know Liles hasn't been as good since the 1st game but he's still outplayed Gardiner so far this season.

Now if you'd like to see Kostka and Gunnarsson getting more PP time along with a broken Gardiner then that's another issue.

Shultz could very possibly get a concussion, miss 6 weeks of play, look lost in his return and get sent back for conditioning.

Bell curves.

I explained this when he was called up again - he's only up for AHL allstar weekend so he can practice.

Going back down to work on conditioning and in-game fitness and timing.

Not a bad move at all.

Be patient with the kid.

Question - how many of you guys pissed that Gardiner isn't playing on the NHL team right now, are also the same group that wants this team to enter instant rebuild mode?

Hypocrites

Who will his defensive partner be? Would be nice if he could play with Holzer and perhaps keep them together as a 3rd pairing when they get promoted. Left and right shooter, offensive and defensive.

I completely understand why they are sending down to the Marlies. It's for his own good and for the good of the team. He is coming off a concussion and you can't rush a return from that.

As for the instant rebuild mode, we have been in need of a rebuild since Sundin left.

The point I was making, was that we have no patience with one single young, promising Dman who is going to be a star in this league.

If we don't have patience with him, what makes people think we will have any patience at all during a full-on rebuild?

Not sure why this is an issue. The guy is not performing right now and he is still coming back from a serious injury. Only the best players right now should be with the team. Jake Gardner may well have the most upside of any of our young players and he is still a big part of the Leafs future. However Carlyle is running a dressing room where there is no sense of entitlement....not too shabby.
