Leaf nation is so starved to find genuine youth talent they hold Kadri and there prospects to such a high level far to early that it has been detrimental to there development. If I was a die hard Leaf fan and my kid was highly ranked going into a draft in the current environment in Leaf Nation, I would not want him there for his own long term well being.
Yeah, I mean look at the Leafs...they totally ruined Kadri.

He was on a track to become the next Gretzky and now he is just a fat lazy player with a terrible body fat%.

It's a shame that the Leaf fans ruin their prospects.

I'm actually glad we don't have Hamilton then, we don't need players who don't want to be here. Even if the Leafs went 0-48 this season they are 10x the hockey market the Bruins are. Some players might succumb to the pressure...others like Kadri prove their critics wrong.

Leaf prospects are always criticized in the media here, 24x7. Kadri could have easily let that get to him, but he didn't.
