Rookie is right reilly is trash he made it to the 3rd string team on the 23rd pairing he also went -6 that tourney, reilly can pass and is capable of mid-orge defence at best , last game he had a beautiful moment where he got caught on right side he proceed to box hainsey out and let Montreal player rifle a perfect shot in, ...I hate jake gardiner he's the worst d man in the league, I'd rather watch Calle Rosen hand the puck over to other team ,least he's got a excuse Jakes almost 30 has no clue what he's doing in the nhl at all leafs d is atrocities behind the blue line

You're a moron if you think Reilly is a good player. He started off strong 3 years ago and went downhill from there. There has been no improvement in his game. Gardiner has always been garbage and will continue being garbage. When I think of good defensemen I think of Keith, Letang and others. Not the joke D men that the Leafs have on their roster.

There is no comparison to Reilly. Reilly was recognized as superior and played in the last world championship tournament, and played well enough to be named as an Alternate/ Assistant Leaf captain afterwards.
Gardiner can only wish to be named to any national team. He was unloaded on the Leafs by Anaheim, along with Lupul for Beachemin. It took him 7 years after being drafted, to make it to the NHL.He is a disaster at the NHL level (and they don't really want anyone to know how bad that trade was).

I agree that the other 30 teams must by now realize that our boy Jake is the weak link in the Leafs defence. that 5 on 3 the other day showed that they can easily sucker him into anything, and he can't recover. Is it really possible that only Nonis and now Babcock+Lamorillo don't recognize this? It is possible that he has become Babs personal project? Other Leaf coaches have had a project that defied logic, every year, it seemed. Regardless, we don't need a project or any more offense. We need a strong defense to stand a chance.Gardiner is just too slow and weak to play with the big boys. He cowers behind the junior team mates when there's a scrum.

I keep hearing people say that Jake Gardiner should be sent to the minors to learn the game. In my view, this clown isn't even an AHL caliber player. The fact that this guy is even playing in the NHL says a lot about how low the skill level in the league has fallen.

80 percent of his passes result in a turnover it’s sickening

Watch how often Montreal exits their zone by going up Gardiner's side. 90% success rate in getting it out. And he gets a 90% failure rate for getting the puck out of the leafs zone. Pathetic.

The maple leafs are in desperate need for DEFENSEMEN. Gardiner and Reilly are totally incompetent and unless we get a quality defenseman we will sink quickly. I think Babcock is sort of clueless. When he talks he mumbles almost the entire time I don't even know what he's saying and that's terrible for a head coach.

Jake Gardiner is a total waste of space. He constantly makes mistakes and yet this moron we call a coach continues playing him. That blunder when NJ scored on our 5-3 penalty was just sad.

Power ply and pressure on the habs. Then Gardiner comes out and misses the puck and coasts back and then he almost gives it away again. So two minute penalty is actually only one minute because he is useless. Why is he on for the PP?? Babcock needs a slap.

absolutely clueless!

Gardiner does it again. He HD the best seat in the house for that goal. Ten feet away from anyone And totally out of the play and actually watched the puck all the way in. The league is in to him. Rush him and he panics. Skate at him and noun e the puck off the boards or between his legs and then skate past him. Leaf management he to tell Babcock to play Gardiner according to his value and talent. Not because he is overpaid and they need to $4mil worth of minutes out of him.
He cripples the forwards who have to play always wondering if they can count on him keeping the puck in.
Trade him. Bench him. Keep him off the ice.

are you kidding me? he is the dumbest supposed defenceman in the league, still making the same mistakes he made as a rookie, and every year since. he's a dumb-ass, with no hockey skills whatever.

This toronto team needs a couple more ron hainsey's to make it deep in the playoffs, they might make it still but not going to do anything with anderson and hainsey as your only defence , how come morgan reilly is dodging all his critics too, he's played like total garbage since they drafted him no one says boo....

Jake has 18 giveaways and 4 slashing minors thru 4 games he's -4 +/- , he really hasn't contributed positively like babcock was saying he should, why babcock has so much trust in him bewilders me,
I would like to see jake play left wing one game and move kadri back to the defense, been saying for years kadri is a beast defensively him or komorov could easily make the change, before you say they can't skate backwards like a d man should, jake can't skate backwards at all kadri had lots of time as a 3rd d man on London ,

a goal against with a two man advantage. In our world it's inconceivable, even in all the last 50 dismal years of watching the Leafs, it would be a stretch to think that they could be that bad -horrendous. If that one play does not tell management that he is a dim-witted, weak, untalented, penalty-prone, gullible, DISASTER, then I don't know what could.In jake's care-free world, there's no problem.

the SUN today singled out the defense for the fiasco last night. They named names, but did not include Gardiner in that list. It amazes me that it can be so obvious to us, but not to the hockey writers. Good Ol' Jake was the master of disaster last night. he is just so dumb, it's unfathomable that anyone actually watching the game could not see that- especially Babcock and Lamerello.

Only Joke Gardiner could screw up a 2 man advantage. In 50 years of watching hockey I have never seen a 2 man short-handed goal....thanks Jake you total waste of oxygen

Reilly and Hainsey
Carrick and zaitsev
Borgman and Marincin
Thus would be a better d core than it is with Gardiner and if they included Gardiner and one of our many young depth right wingers in a trade for another top 4 it'd be even better, only way to take care of these god awful defensive screw ups

Trade #51 he thinks he's bobby Orr one minute then pauly shore the next....

Is it too late for polak? Cause he's looking pretty good, carrick and polak can be the 2nd pair, ....toronto needs to make a big trade and land a top 10 d man, too bad we traded vitor loov, he was ready to come in nhl this year, we would have no need for gardiner then , I've also come to the conclusion babcock coaches defensemen poorly, u never see him get out the little play sketchers for defensive face offs,
