just my opinion, but an agent shouldn't be going to the media/world like that. If you have a problem with the team, then its with the team. Don't try and create controversy, cause it just degrades your reputation
And 22 year olds who have some offensive upside but aren't necessarily ready to handle the two way nature of the NHL game should stop whining, acting like they're entitled to spoon fed minutes, and work to improve the weaker parts of their game.
Gardiner has lots of potential, but he was also enjoyed a lot of sheltered minutes and played on a team last year that was literally porous.. The Leafs are doing well, and a large part of that is playing much more solid defensive hockey. Carlyle isn't the type to be wooed by flashy rushes - there's a hell of a lot more to the game than that.
Gardiner also had some concussion issues did he not? Rushing this youngster back into the lineup hasn't been necessary and probably not prudent.
I don't think his agent is helping with this kind of drama - "Free Gardiner" - really?
The prison justice language is in really bad taste imo.
