If we keep both Gardiner and Rielly, this will be a fun team to watch. Phaneuf will be one happy captain.

He will never be a great D-Man. I don't see it in him.

But, at the risk of beating a dead horse, can you imagine that SPEED and those hands on the wing???

Why are teams so resistant to moving D-Men up front when they are young? They are quick to do the opposite.

You give it a rest - your "he will be a great d man because I say so" silliness. What do you know?

I have the right to be here like everyone else. I rooted for them, too.

You please go.

Yeah sure, move Gardiner to the wing. The Leafs don't spend nearly enough time hemmed into their own zone, unable to advanced the puck.

I would rather have 6 Gardiners on defence than our current lineup.

I used to think that his absolute maximum potential was a #2 defender and would likely be a 3 or 4 on a good club.

I was wrong.

You obviously didn't watch this series.

He was great positionally and took the body of Lucic, Jagr, Seguin amongst others when he needed to. His defensive awareness was incredible.

I thought he did a good job in pinning his man to the boards

he is an elite skater with amazing offensive upside who will continue to get better

I can't wait for the arrival of reilly

almost like gardiner 2.0 however I see more upside in reilly

remember in camp, Carlyle said that if this was a full camp, reilly would be on the team

Gardiner has officially emerged. His play this series is certainly a silver lining. Already can't wait for next season.

Am I the only one who was not surprised by his play? Hands down my favorite prospect I have seen with the leafs in 20 years.

For our sake, I hope Kostka doesn't also "re-emerge" some time next year.

Same here. I thought he was a likely 2 or 3 offensive defenseman, but he really opened my eyes this series with his play, and I'm talking about from a strictly defensive perspective. He competed and won a lot of battles in his own end with his speed and smarts.

Maybe RC will convert him to a forward so we can have an all-grit fourth line: Orr-McLaren - Kostka. Other teams are trembling.

Move Gardiner to wing? To what 4th line wing?
