For example, Kassian was playing top line minutes for the Canucks and scoring at a ridiculous rate, did that make him a core player for the Canucks at that time? No, of course not! You cannot hold the double standard that your blue chip prospects are more worthy of being deemed core players than other teams.
Half a season now... It's been half a season of Gallagher playing better than Bourque, Gionta, Prust, Moen, Armstrong and Galchenyuk.

Is Huberdeau a core player in Florida? Tarasenko in ST-Louis? IMO yes they are because the impact they make is essential to the team success

I've already dismissed Galchenyuk so stop bringing him up.
