The core, if Kessel is traded becomes:

Kadri
Lupul
JvR
Gardiner
Rielly
Phaneuf ---> I'd assume he's traded too, if Kessel is.
Whatever Kessel returns.
There is no great secret that the NYR love USA players. Just look at their top prospects. Torts coached Kessel in the olympics. Kessel fits the NYR mold more than Gabby. A sideways move, but Gabby is on Tort's crap list often.

Change of scenery for both.
