Rumor: UFA Jake Gardiner has his eyes on 2 teams

Jake Gardiner has played the last eight seasons with the Toronto Maple Leafs and according to sources, the mobile d-man is contemplating multiple offers and word is his short list has been finalized down to 2 teams.

Sources indicate Gardiner has been very impressed with the pitches made from the Vancouver Canucks and the Dallas Stars. The former has Gardiner and Tyler Myers near the top of their priority list, while the latter is in heavy talks with Joe Pavelski, which could see a deal announced on Monday.

Is there enough money if Gardiner joins either team after someone else has signed? Probably not, so if these teams move on without Gardiner, look for 'Shakey Jakey' to consider the Habs and the Wild.

One things for sure, it appears Gardiner's time in Toronto is over.
