Leafs trade Kapanen
Carolina trades Gardiner*
*Carolina retains 50%

It's a cap saver. Gardiner at 50% would be the same as Barrie this year at $2.25M. You don't find better value. We know Gardiner can play RHD and him and Reilly have done well in the past together. If it doesn't work out, so want? We dump Gards on the third line until we can trade him. Remember, at $2.0M he is a can't miss opportunity. Leafs need to shed cap space. So rather than lose Kapanen for a pick that won't be in the team for years, if ever, why not take a shot on bringing back a fan favorite.

I would definitely do this.

I think you may even be able to recoup our first and give them a 3rd or 4th.

Gardiner is horrible. Awful last year with Canes. He isn't worth a bag of hair. Kappy is worth a late 1rst. Ditto. Dermott. The 2 can fetch a young 2-3 RHD with term. I will give Dubas a mulligan for the Kadri trade. He was young n dumb. But now so many days have passed. pandemics rage UFOs appear meteors miss so Kyle just ask what would Burke do and do the opposite.

I think I'd pass. Barrie is probably better than Gardiner. Kapanen is quite a bit better than Gardiner. It's not horrible like park gardens nylander trade.

I can’t believe you would post this garbage Leafsgm
The fact Randy agrees with you should tell you something.

02 May 2020 13:39:32
you lost me when you said fan favourite.

02 May 2020 17:12:52
Fan favorite was the last thing I said, so you made it through most of the post FarmBoy.

I knew this one would get people excited.

I guess even at $2M Gardiner is just way too hated to ever consider bringing him back.

What about the Pylon? He didn't officially retired until just this year. He might un-retire to make a comeback to glory with his former team.

02 May 2020 17:49:39
Lol I can get behind a discounted Gardiner but not the Pylon.

02 May 2020 19:07:30
I know that LGM. I was just trying to make a point that fans hate Gardiner and Bringing him back is a bad idea.

02 May 2020 19:30:36
Fans can hate whoever they feel like. Gardiner wasn't half as bad as some fans lead us to believe. Gardiner beside Reilly in this system would have been almost identical to Barrie.
