I am a patient fan but my patience is wearing out on Jake Gardiner. I am about ready for that experiment to end. I have not seen enough signs of his upside offensive potential to make up for his many critical gaffes defensively. He is a turnover machine and has made an ordinarily strong defensive partner in Pesce look less than stellar. I would not mind if he is traded and has earned his spot on Hockey News top 30 most likely to be traded players.
