Kadri has put up points in his first few games, he's played good half the time. The other half has been awful.

I'm giving him the benefit of the doubt though because he's never been given a chance and his game relies on creativity. He is just trying too hard half the time.

I really like his positioning though as shown on a couple of his goals this year. The rebound off the board he scored on the other night was a great effort by him. He made sure he beat everyone to the puck, good awareness driving to the net.

Alot of glaring issues in his game though. He isn't as agile as he thinks he is. Defenders take the body on him constantly and overpower him. needs to use his teammates more on zone entries as that seems to be his biggest problem (everyone knows he's going to try to dangle his way in so they just angle him into the boards and take the body, he needs to start dumping it in or passing and he'll be fine).

Too cute with his passes for this team. he needs to play more North/South instead of East/West as that is where his problem lies, he is always looking cross ice for the neat passing play. By then he is rubbed off the puck or gives it away, he doesnt have the strength to afford him the patience and time vs NHL players yet.

Average skater with the puck, going to need more strength to actually be able to get around NHL defenceman consistently to play "his" game
