With Kadri playing top line center though, I want to see that offense, but I shudder to see the defense played.

Kadri has made leaps and bounds improvement on the defensive side of his game however I don't think he is yet on Bozak's level personally. Maybe a JVR - Kadri - Kessel line? Slide Lupul down to Grabo's line which I think could end up getting fairly sheltered minutes whenever we resume hockey again. If Kessel and Lupul commit to playing defense more than they currently do then that may not have to happen.

I still think we should ease Kadri into being a full time NHLer. I don't want to throw him on the top line immediately and have huge expectations of him in that position only to see him possibly flounder and lose any confidence he has gained.
