My best case scenario is Kadri stepping up to the #1C role, with Bozak sliding down to become one of the best 3Cs in the NHL and the Leafs squeaking into the playoffs. My hope is that Kadri will grow into that role and become the legit #1 C this team has been looking for beside Kessel. The offensive upside is there, and with the progress he's made on defense, I can see him improving enough to fulfill the responsibilities of this role.

I know making playoffs will mean we get a mid-round pick instead of a lottery pick, but IMO if Kadri steps up this gives us a chance to draft a high upside prospect who we can take our time on because our NHL C situation is strong.

Anyways, just my $0.02.
