Jeff Carter #11 overall

19 years - Returned to junior
20 years - Returned to junior + some AHL
21 years - NHL lower lines

There are many more examples but suffice to say, given Kadri's performance at every level and the fact he just recently turned 21, he is EXACTLY on schedule with where he should be and his organization is treating him EXACTLY the same as organizations who are successful at developing high end forwards treat their forwards.

In short, nothing to see here. My personal hope would be to see a line of guys like Colborne, Kadri and Frattin developing on the 3rd (though Bozak needs a spot too).
Finally somebody said it!
