Tied with Frattin.
The only 2 "bums" that I don't see a future with are Connolly and Lombardi. He is also obviously better than Brown and Komarov but they are 4h liners.
Even with Connolly and Lombardi gone he still will have a hard time breaking in, unless he can play center, or if Mac is moved(who is shat on often times for no reason)
Not that this makes any difference. Kadri hasn't really been playing wing this season in the AHL. I think he may end up playing center between Kessel and Lupul.
At the end of last year Carlyle was talking wonders about Kadri's game. I believe he was an emergency call up at one point and wasnt able to stay with the team because we had used all of our post deadline call-ups. He was saying that if he could, kadri would have finished the season with the leafs.
I do feel that Carlyle has had a part of Kadri playing centre in the AHL. When Eakins wasn't under managements radar, Kadri was playing wing to Zigomanis with Hamilton on the other side. Now (in a season with extra boddies) hes playing center and our most productive one. I believe he will be playing center on the top line... just a hunch. I dont see why the Marlies would have him at center if they planned to move him to the wing in the NHL. Makes no sense.
