Decided to look up Kadri's giveaways and compare to some other players.

Kadri had 9 giveaways in his 21 games last year. On pace for 35 giveaways over an 82 games season. (As per NHL.com)

Other forwards on Toronto over an 82 game season:
Kessel - 82
Grabo - 50
Lupul - 51
MacArthur - 38
Kulemin - 27
Bozak - 29
Connolly - 48
Frattin - 22

Some other young forwards over 82 games:
B Schenn - 23
Couturier - 28
Seguin - 43
Henrique - 28
Hodgson - 26
Nyquist - 23
Duchene - 30
O'Rielly - 34
Landeskog - 35

Some players had many more, some players had less. Kadri is right in the neighbourhood of most of the young players I chose to look at, being a little on the higher end but still in the range of them. Also note that giveaways is only half the battle really, takeaways are also important. Didn't bother looking that up for everyone but Kadri had 8 takeaways (compared to 9 giveaways). With the flak he often get in regards to this aspect of his game one could think his numbers would be something more along the lines of 20 giveaways and 5 takeaways. Not the 9 and 8 respectively that it is.
