Hodgson might be a better example, although hopefully without the off-ice troubles.
The Sedins didn't start in a defensive role. They played 2nd line ice during the WCE era. That team was offense-first. Where they gained the trust of AV is during the Nonis/Luongo era. Meaning, they didn't start out strong defensively, in fact foot speed was an issue there, but became better defensively as they progressed in their careers.
Hodgson is a slower skater than Kadri also. Nor was Hodgson a strong possession player by the stats. I don't see a parallel here.
