To gauge the true quality of organizational depth, you can't punish them for having top notch talent that contribute at the NHL level before most in their age group. Gardiner is still 21 years old and on a two-way contract.

Guys at that age on their entry level contracts are deemed 'prospects' in my books.

Whether they've played 50 games in the NHL this season or 50 games in the AHL.
My take was always that "prospect" was short for "prospective NHLer" (or NFLer, major leaguer, whatever). At this point Gardiner is an NHL player.
