Not all coaches like all players.

He was a decent set-up man, and face-off specialist. Burns would never give him a fair shake.
You could add Steve Sullivan to that list as well!

I think a lot of people forget that Kadri although only scoring 5 goals last year in the NHL was still on pace for nearly 20 goals at that level. I can see him as a 20/45 or 20/50 guy down the road, legitimately.

On a side note, Eakins stated that Kadri is consistently a top 3 hardest working and passionate guy on the ice for every game. I also think people that actually watch the guy can see that, he doesn't shy away from physical play or from chirping at his opponents. He never looks like he's not trying, and I wouldn't call him floaty, at least not in the last couple of years.
