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...
If Kadri doesn't make the NHL team next year he'll be subject to waivers to get him down.

Makes no sense to acquire a 22 year old player, you will lose to waivers....especially when you don't think he'll be able to make a impact in the NHL for 3 or 4 more years.

It's crazy to me to even suggest him as a main piece. He's a throw in.
