    In what world can you justify Gardiner being equal too Gudbransson, Paajarvi, Johansen and Schenn and Considered better than Franson, Blum, Skinner and Nino. This needs to be fixed.

    You're right. Now that he's a Leaf, he should be, AT MAX, around 6.0F... because he's a Leaf.

    Geeze.

    I agree that it needs to be fixed. I agree that it probably should have been fixed when he was a Duck. The reason no one brought it up is because, really, when has anyone in Anaheim ever had half the attention Leafs prospects get? Everything Leafs gets analyzed to death and shoved down the throats of every fan. Before a week ago, a good portion of hockey fans had never even heard of Jake Gardiner.

    i am the biggest leaf hater of all... but that is just ridiculous ... jake gardiner is a stud and is having a superb season in college... this would not be the time for his ranking to go down... defencemen take longer to develop and he's right on track... don't worry he will be just as good as blum... lastly don't compare defencemen to forwards

    Elite skating ability and decent size is why he is rated so high.

    I was thinking 4.0D. I mean realistically, this kid is a terrible hockey player who can barely skate and is what, 5 foot 6? Do we want Nathan Gerbe patrolling our blueline? I think not.

    Not to mention he was kicked off the UC Berkeley Lego Robot team for smuggling controllers out of the lab. Questionable character to say the least.

    well, since Hickey's rated a 7.5C, there's really no choice but to make the faster, bigger, better Gardiner an 8.0C.

    Hickey and Gardiner both should be 7.0Cs.

    No kidding, eh? I saw the title and laughed at how quickly Leaf haters go to work...
    Then, for a split second, I had a horrible thought of a Leafs fan going to the main boards complaining Gardiner should be an 8.5B...

    But it's nice to see which stereotype has prevailed in this instance.

    You know who sucks too?
    Thornton. And Heatley. And Hossa. And Rask. And Kessel. And every player who has ever been traded.
