My only gripe was that you said Vigneault is fine with the Sedins, so he would be fine with Kadri, which is absurd, as they are far superior defensively as well as offensively.
*I'm not saying Vigneault wouldn't play Kadri, I thunk he would, it's using the Sedins as a benchmark for that assumption.
The Sedins aren't defensive stalwarts, yet when they were racking up the goals against in the playoffs, AV kept trotting them out there. Meaning, he understands that he needs to play them - regardless of their defensive prowess. It would be the same with Kadri.
What are the Sedins right now? Average defensively? If so, Kadri would have to show that he can't get to average for there to be a great disparity between the two. The Sedins didn't start out average, IMO.
