Gardiner is significantly more valuable then Kassian, as for Kassian and Kadri, I'd say that's probably a wash value wise, but I'd still rather have Kadri.

Kassian's ceiling is not that high, he lacks high end skill and hockey sense. His shot power, grit and size top his ceiling for me as a 2nd line winger...

Gardiner's potential is that of a #2 50pt defenseman.
Lol. Sounds like you haven't watched him that much. His skill level is definitely there, he has great playmaking ability and an underrated shot. It's his consistency that needs work.

Anyways, I think Kadri and Kassian have similar values, with Kadri being more skilled but Kassian having the size/grit that makes him a safer bet.

Of course, Kassian's value is inflated to Vancouver due to the price we paid.
