You see that's what I'm afraid of. I know everyone wants Riellyto remain in junior, but if he does, he will be counted on to lead the rush on most nights and he'll continue playing against weaker competition. Then those bad habits that you could get away with in junior against weaker players might creep into his game when he reaches the next level. I really feel that's what happened to Kadri and that's the real problem in Kadri's game.
