Check it if you like! I would not trade Kadri. Leafs have not drafted a player like him since Darryl Sittler!
I'm with you, I love the way Kadri plays and wouldn't trade him either but just asking what put him ahead of Tavares for you...got my answer. Everyone is entitled to their opinion

I dragged 2 friends to a Knights/Storm game to watch Tavares, and we all thought the same thing. It was amazing how much better he seemed then Tavares. But JT's skill with the puck in close is what makes him so dangerous. I always thought Hull was a similar talent. Knew where to be, and how to get the shot off.
