The difference between Colborne and Kadri is engagement and hard work. Kadri has many days where once the puck is by him, he slows down or turns away. But there are times when Kadri is right in the play as well.

Even when Colborne is putting up points, I don't see him engaging enough. Too soft on the puck and the man and very perimeter. He has the size and the skill, but the feet and hard work aren't there. If you could combine the two players, then wow!

If this were the old NHL, Colborne would still make it despite his downfalls, on his size alone, while Kadri, if not putting up points, likely wouldn't. Now that the game's emphasis is more on speed and skill, Kadri is more likely to make it despite his weakneses, while Colborne will be an AHL lifer if this continues. No team has time anymore for a player of his size who uses none of it.
