Wilson has this team headed for the playoffs, it has been a long time since we've been in the top 8 of the east late in december. I'll trust his coaching decisions over anything the turds on this board have to say.
I'd take Kadri just for the fact he is good against Boston, Buffalo and Ottawa.

I trust Wilson to say: "Let's GO" every now and then.

Wilson is using the top six more for the PK. Perfect time to bring up Kadri. You gonna love this kid. He is going to be great.

We are in our defensive zone most of the game. hint hint Imma get at you dog!

I think a lot of people are letting our quick start blind the real skill level of this team. We are normalizing now and are going to spend the rest of the year battling. There will be roster moves to better the team but they will be bigger than rushing your best prospect. That is the one thing we should avoid at all costs. Kadri is almost ready, almost.
have you watched any games this year? This team doesn't play defense at all. They play a run and gun prefect for kadri.

You mean our last place Pk right? Out doesn't matter who's out there Wilson can't coach the Pk.

Because Boyce would definitely be the answer.

Like I said earlier, every pro, former coaches, players, analysts have really liked Frattin's play of late(you didn't take up my challenge, so clearly you agree), but here we have some dude in his basement named Zeke who really knows what time it is.

Funny. BTW, you'd have some credibility if you could at least acknowledge improved play, rather than just the usual "he stole my guy's reserved spot" routine you've been on and on and on and on and on about since October.

Frattin is making a fool out of you, game by game....
Kadri is better then frattin so I don't know where you're going with this

Colborne + Kadri = Should be on the team right now.
Frattin = Should be playing with them. (The Kid line)

My personal theory is that if they start now working together in the NHL they could move up in the future. They should be learning defensive strategies in the NHL right now anyways. Need to improve the two way game but Wilson has no defensive strategy so maybe a bad idea...

This!

Huh...took Boyce all of 4:12 to do what Dupuis hasn't been able to do all season...help create some offense!

* I know he didn't get a point but he played a role in that.
