Jake Gardiner

This quote inspired me to give him his thread. Jake's come a long way in two years. I'm sure there'll be an offensive play or two to put here during this Stanley Cup winning season ;)

No disrespect to Gardiner, but that player "checking" him was absolutely brutal in his attempt.

Not the defender's fault. Jake's smooth skating mesmerized him and lulled him to sleep.

I think Gards sold the "I'm passing it back to a teammate" act so well that he caught the guy flat-footed, honestly.

I watched the SJ game last night and wow!! Gardiner looked really bad, I mean he just sucked. this guy is not playing his game. also, a note The defense as a whole are not getting the puck out to take advantage of the fast offense, and nor are they holding the blue line. as for our offense, we are being out hustled

My take-home from that article is: we're going to win the Stanley Cup, soon.

That is a wonderful article and whatnot, but the fact is that he was all-caps AWFUL in the one game where it counted most.  So no, PPP, people aren't going to seriously stop criticizing him and wanting to trade him until he is not awful in a G7-type situation.

And when he gets traded, they will wonder why we can't even make it to Game 7 in Round 1.
