Great article, sums up what a lot of us Kadri backers have been pleading for, and what the Burke/Leaf apologists on here seem to jump down our throats about.

The best part about the article is the talk about the Leaf braintrust being so obsessed with not making Kadri feel that he's a special player that theyve made it impossible, up to this point, for him to become a special player. Lets hope they keep him in the lineup and let him produce.

I hated this article. Absolutely every bit of it. Kadris performance isn't going to be based on the superficial. Or based on a number. Burke has ensured kadri that he's a part of this future (unless a shocking deal comes along), and one would think that would be enough for comfort. A number has nothing to do with a players performace. Yes its comforting, but that's not the reason why you believe you're part of a teams plans..the gm telling you is generally that reason.

This guy wasted his time writing this article and wasted my time reading it.
