It was just my opinion that the general assumption was that Kadri would be a lock as a top line player in Toronto & I dont agree with that asessment. He could perhaps be a 20 goal 45 point guy on your 2nd or 3rd line someday. Which im sure most sane Leaf fans will gladly take.
Bingo.

This is one thing i do admire about Burke's drafting of prospects with some edge/bite/tenacity; if they can't put the offensive tools together, they've got the mean streak to battle it out on the 3rd lines. I've never been a fan of drafting prospects for pure offensive talent unless it's a given they'll reach it.
