They're different. Frattin is older and has more limited upside, whereas Kadri is a boom/bust prospect that likely doesn't help us much this year or next but could end up being a Mike Ribeiro type in 3 or 4 years.

I like Frattin because I think he's a good fit with Lapierre and Kassian on the 4th line. Would give us size, physicality and some offensive punch for once. Frattin the shooter, Kassian the passer - could make for a good fit.

I've never liked Kadri when I've seen him but he still could turn into an impact player at the NHL level. On the fence whether or not I would want him as a piece coming back...
