08:22 AM ET 03.14 | At some point, no doubt, Jake Gardiner will return from the AHL to the Maple Leafs -- something of which head coach Randy Carlyle is sure. The question weighing on the mind of seemingly everyone in Leafs Nation, though, is when? ... [There's] been no summoning of Gardiner from the Marlies, and his agent, Ben Hankinson, didn't aid the situation when he tweeted late on Tuesday night #FreeJakeGardiner after the Leafs were trounced 5-2 on the road by the Winnipeg Jets. ... For Carlyle, Hankinson's little outburst on Twitter meant nothing. "I don't really pay attention to what agents have to say," Carlyle said. "I don't live in the Twitter world. We make our judgment and our assessment on our players."

"I don't really pay attention to what agents have to say," Carlyle said.


Words to live by.

This is so stupid.

But, what do you expect when you have Jake Gardiner in the A, JML in the press box, and give Korbinian Holzer nearly 20 minutes of ice time a game?

And don't forget Mikey's also writing a book about the best press boxes in the NHL.

Nobody's wondering why Mikey ain't playing.

I'm starting to judge the wisdom of leaving Johnny up there, though. Or Jake down at the Ex rather than on Bay St.

Perhaps the guy signing his cheques does.

2nd highest paid defenseman and only because somebody way overpaid the 1st.
