What the...?

Kadri has consistently taken far less penalties than he's drawn. He's been one of the better Leafs in terms of puck possession and he's only 20 years old. He's definitely NHL ready. His first 51 games he has 19 points, which is 31 over a full season. Not many prospects put up a 31 point season in their first year at age 20/21.

How young does Gillis possibly have to get his hands on a player anyway? Kadri is 22 and won't turn 23 until after the next season starts.. and that might be too old?
