I've only seen Kadri play twice this year, both on TV. I'd seen him a dozen or so times last year (live) and he didn't look great.

I know he had a hot run, statistically, last month and his stat sheet looks okay, but from those who've watched him play this year, does he look better? Does he look NHL-ready out there?

He used to get pushed around a lot, had trouble making plays in traffic, didn't have the strength/agility combination to be effective. Always great puck skills but inability to create separation for himself, giving him time/space to make plays.

He's gotten much better this year, seems stronger and smarter with and without the puck.

Any thoughts on how his game is progressing?

I'd love to see him get a real shot on the top line, with Kessel and either Lupul or JVR, but if there's no season, that won't happen! (brilliant anaysis by me!)
