Either the prospect (in this case Kadri) is not good enough or the manager (Burke) is holding him back and intentionally sabotaging his pro development.

One or the other.

Either Kadri is just not good (Burke's fault) or it's Burkes fault (also Burke's fault).
Your too stubborn to deal with, go to bed grandpa your getting a little cranky

When he got here we had no prospects, and sold anything worth anything and needed to sign stop gaps. His first draft was when Kadri was picked, he signed fillers for 3-4 years anticipating the length of development and now 3-4 years later they are coming off the books while Kadri is ready... Philly had the same situation however they didn't do it out of anticipation, instead because of a new team direction. It just happened that they returned 2 NHL ready prospects and signed one the same offseason. The situations are similar, the difference is phillys situation was a coincidence, Burke set a timeline for Kadris development.
