Sure the Devils have some good young defensemen in their system, but none are as proven to the extent of Gardiner.

Granted, I did overlook the thinness of NJ's forward group, but people are making Kadri out to be some kind of bust or throw-in. Reality is he's still considered a legitimate prospect and is highly skilled.

I still think the value is there, but as many have pointed out, both teams probably wouldn't pull the trigger.
