I have no idea what that means, Kadri is a hockey player and not a house.

I disagree. There was Ramadan over the summer and that was about it. Everything else can be compensated for through dietary supplements.

Fair enough. Here is more info, I guess he is not watching it.

"His body fat today is probably in the bottom three to five guys in our whole camp and that's unacceptable," Eakins told reporters Friday. "That's the easiest part of coming into camp is eating correctly and training correctly."

The best part about this is even GMs call players assets... like at the trade deadline, "We acquired several assets for our marquee player, etc, etc" or "we're looking for 2-3 assets in return, etc"

Cherry saying something against the Leafs and "protecting" an Ontario boy? Shocker.

That's a brilliant observation for a trade discussion. In all other cases GM's use the names of their players when they discuss them.

Kadri hasn't done **** and has high expectations. Can't baby prospects , he's already 22(in a couple days) . How many years do we have to say"we'll next year" by then he'll already be 30 and still in the AHL.

That's one of the biggest problems with this whole circus. People taking a comment about body fat and turning it into a criticism of Kadri's playing abilities of which Eakins has been very complimentary.

Thats the thing though, he still hasn't done anything on the ice noteworthy.

It's okay, not everyone can recognize hockey talent.

I'd post Eakins comments about how Kadri has done everything asked of him but the media didn't report those.

LOL at this fanbase crucifying Kadri.

I hope he gets dealt and turns into an elite 1C for another team, preferably in our division - maybe Sequinesque?

I kinda agree with both sides of the coin on this one. Kadri, IMO has had too much criticism since being drafted by the Leafs....a lot unwarranted. That much I do agree with.

Showing up to camp after supposedly training with Gary Roberts with one of the worst BF percentages on the team is unacceptable....I think Kadri should be held to a higher standard than any other Leaf prospect. exception Reilly, but he is just a kid. Kadri is no longer a "kid"...He needs to step up. Maybe Eakins didn't need to have a press conference about it...but maybe the media just blows everything out of proportion. I don't care for Eakins talking about it to the media but doesn't really negate the disappointment with Kadri for not being at the top of the team in every measurable way, showing some real desire to finally break through this season and make the parent club.

I am not one to defend the leafs but maybe there have been many private talks and that hasn't worked yet either??

When has Kadri ever been babied? Kid just gets ripped publicly every year by the coaching staff.

We're talking about TML having some sense and keeping their mouths shut on certain questions.

Clearly having Kadri get bashed publicly is working well...

I don't think so. Perhaps Brad Boyes-esque.

Agree with Cherry on this one. Every news you hear about Kadri from this organization seems to be negative.

Hope Kadri proves them all wrong, and makes em shut the **** up.

What 'Damage is done'? Seems to be the craziest thing here. If Kadri isn't bothered by it, then why is everyone worried that his HF trade value may go down.

The damage is done. Good one.

That's a good point. Kind of the same way Kessel didn't care about being the last pick of the All Star Game Draft, however the media kept brining up and it got mentioned on here a lot.

Yes, clearly the organization's fault Kadri was bragging about his new regime under Roberts and then turned out to be pretty much in the worst shape of ANYONE coming into camp. Shut your yap kid, unless you can back it up, which you haven't yet. Shhhhh!
