I'm trying to figure out what is going on with Gardiner... I fully understand no offer sheets for Marner since that means not just having Cap space but also giving up picks etc... Gardiner is a free agent... All he costs you is the Cap space... and yet no offers???
Jake is a good player... Granted when he makes mistakes they are epic... The potential has always been there but to an extent he has never really lived up to it... Still, you would think there would have been some offers... Even lowball offers, yet I am hearing nothing at all... Not even hearing of any interest...
Are they just not talking about it or are there actually no teams at all interested??? If we get around to camp or the beginning of the season and he hasn't been signed do the Leafs try to bring him back??? Really cheap??? They have no Cap room once Marner is signed (and I'm sure he will be) so how might that play out???
Obviously he has quite a few NHL years left in him but WTF is going on with Jake Gardiner???
