I'm definitely not going to say that Kadri is better in every facet of the game, or even that he's the better player overall yet (although I will say he has been by far this season), but I do hope that his play silences all the haters that he seems to have on these boards. Frankly, it's incredible that you guys are finding ways to hate on a guy that has scored 5 points in 4 games and has been arguably his team's best player.

Another thing, his shooting percentage is high because of great positional play, all 3 of his goals have come from being in the right spot on the ice. Obviously his average is going to go down, but the way he is scoring his goals is encouraging.




Now obviously he isn't going to get these fortunate bounces all season, but generally when it seems like a player is in the right place at the right time consistently, it isn't a coincidence. Kadri has been playing very smart hockey rather than trying to razzle and dazzle like he has in past stints in the NHL.

Youre preaching to the choir here, I love Kadri and have since watching him in the AHL. Kid has some serious talent and the only thing he's done wrong at the NHL level is play for the leafs

shhhhh don't tell anyone!
