Good article. I agree that Holland has great potential. Look at players like Jeff Carter and Ryan Getzlaf, they weren't absolutely lighting up the CHL (they still had pretty good numbers), but they were big and skilled, which enabled them to translate their games to the NHL fairly easily. As for Kadri, the Leafs NEED to have patience. He is a small guy, but with a big heart and a competetive edge which will serve him well. His skill level virtually guarantees that he will be an NHL player, but that could range from a 40 point to a 90 point player, it depends on his development. The kid right now is what, 5'11", 175 lbs? If he becomes 5'11" 195 lbs, and doesn't lose his speed, I think he will be very very good. Another thing that Kadri has going for him is that he is a very shifty player.
