Hockey Central panel discusses whether the Toronto Maple Leafs should trade Jake Gardiner. The 23-year old Gardiner carries a $875,000 salary cap hit and will be a RFA at the end of the season.
John Shannon thinks the Leafs should keep Gardiner and allow him to play more of the style he wants to play. Can the Leafs play both Gardiner and Morgan Rielly, both similar players? It could be dangerous to move a player like him.
Should the Maple Leafs trade Gardiner? If so, what type of deal should they be looking to do?
