His size isn't so much the issue - the roster that has been assembled's size is his problem.

You can't have Kessel and Kadri playing together.

As evidenced in almost game last season the easiest way to beat the Leafs is to clog up the neutral zone - dump n chase. Their small forwards inability to win battles along the boards almost always resulted in either a Goal agains or penalty.

Kadri on the 3rd line is fine as a temporary situation - but whats the end game? He'd be more valuable to the organization now by being traded for pieces that can compliment the core Burke has assembled.

I love Kadri - I'd rather trade Kessel than him - but its never going to happen as long as Burke is in charge
