Gardiner and Kadri aren't our core, they're complimentary pieces(although you could argue for gardiner).
Edmonton however solely relies on 18-22 year olds for it's top scoring.
based on reliance, Kessel(25), Lupul(29), Phaneuf(27) Grabo(29) and JVR(23) would be considered our 'core'(maybe Gardiner on top of that) with Reilly soon being the next guy.
I mean you could argue in multiple ways who's our core, I'm simply stating Edmonton heavily relies on a young group of 18-23 year olds for scoring and playing the most minutes, while we rely or are about to rely on a bunch of mid-twenty year olds who are entering their prime.
Edmonton is a few years away from blossoming, while we have guys that are largely seasoned.
