This kid just get it.

No comparison.

I think Kadri is going to be a good NHLer, but the reason he never stuck around was his unwillingness to play two-way hockey. It happens to a lot of young players. It took Spezza years to figure it out. They only want the glory at the beginning...
Kadri's also younger which is why he was bounced up and down. He wasn't developed yet. He's only starting to stick now because he's finally maturing a bit as a player.

Silf has the benifit of maturing overseas, so we didn't have to watch him bounce up and down from the AHL. And he got a half season to acclimatize a bit thanks to the lock out.
