07:28 AM ET 10.08 | Not far removed from playing high school hockey in Minnesota, Jake Gardiner now finds himself in one of hockey's biggest fishbowls -- but perhaps not forever. There is definitely some level of conversation going on between other teams and Toronto involving [Gardiner]. I despise the word "shopped," as it's more like a feeling-out process. If the Maple Leafs do decide to do it, it's going to be for a young asset or assets. So, you have to look at teams with talented young players. This is PURELY my speculation, but if teams like Dallas, Florida or Minnesota would be interested, you could see a match. ... The Gardiner talk surprised me, because he was so impressive against Boston in last year's playoffs. There are scouts who still have questions, but most agree that he has a valuable skill -- he can skate the puck out of trouble.

The trained monkeys from SI glean the articles and attach their own headlines. Explains a lot really.

Doesn't every responsible GM do that all the time? Isn't it their job to test the waters and see if there's a way to improve their team now without selling the future?
