On top of that, he's not a North American player (so he, unlike Kadri, was expected to take time to adjust to N.A.), and he's not got any conditioning problems (Kadri was pounced on by the Toronto media for this). On top of that, we're a much smaller market, and the Sun seems to be taken with a grain of salt by the players here.
Thank you for posting my thoughts for me.

I thought today was the best he's played so far. He did remind me of Alfie at times today, and that's why I think he's a good fit on the 2nd line with Turris.
