The guy is young and put up 55 points, good defensively, and plays a lot on the PK. Put him with Kessel and that line gets better defensively and he probably puts up ~60 points at least.

I'd trade Gardiner+ (as long as the + is reasonable) for ROR.

Trade from a position of strength to get a position of need..

ROR and Kadri as our top 2 centers? That's a hell of a lot better than what it was 2-3 years ago.
Then slide Bozak in the #3 role and put him and Phil on the PP so they can still play with each other.

ROR
Kadri
Bozak
McClement

Is terrific center depth. 2 potential top line Cs, and 2 versatile bottom 6 Cs who can play anywhere. (Bozak can step into a top 6 role if needed too)
