This part right here is what would make most go "huh". I won't enter this versus debate, as it's all elementary right now (as all of these threads are), but...seriously? Not physical enough? Way to watch, author. Kadri regularly gets penalties for those soft head-hit rules in the OHL...most of us are concerned that at his size, he shouldn't try to be SO physical at the next level. Kid's asking for an injury.
I suppose I shouldn't have to point out his 35 goals for the finishing comment...though I'm also too lazy to check when the article was written. The acceleration bit I'll agree with...always thought so. Good skater, just has to wind it up first.
