burke wouldnt move kadri for a project. i dont feel like the leafs feel like he is a project or a bust either. its debatable whether or not he was handled poorly but i think kadri has tremendous upside.
i wouldnt say he is untouchable but for him to be moved i would think it would be as part of a package for something that will help us for years to come, not another roll of the dice so to speak.
the fact that it seems more likely that kadri becomes a winger at the nhl level is not a big deal. many many players were centers during their junior careers and wingers at the nhl level (kessel, jvr to name a few). the fact that the leafs have depth at wing does not mean that kadri cannot play on the third line at the nhl level either. many great young players started on the third line and worked their way up as they displaced older players.
realistically i think going into next season both kadri and frattin will be on the leafs.
lupul bozak kessel
jvr grabs kadri
kulemin mclemment frattin
brown steckel komorov
lombardi, connolly, mac all gone will open up room for them.
