Aside from putting up more points than Frattin in both the ahl and nhl Kadri also draws about 5X more penalties, takes faceoffs better and runs guys over just about as consistently (he's an opportunist but he'll level a guy). Not saying Kadri is a better hitter but giving out big hits that put the fans on their feet is part of his game.

Maybe Leafs should look at bringing Stralman in with these hits, he's just like Kronwall.


Desjardins estimates that about 40% of the game is captured by Corsi analysis.
