I feel like Kadri would work really well with JVR on his wing, I'd really like to see it. I remember watching Kadri last year and in so many games, especially the Detroit game Kadri was creating so many scoring opportunities for guys, Lombardi in particular, but nobody could put them away. He needs to play with players who can finish and I think he'll really flourish.
SPRINGFIELD, Mass. … The American Hockey League announced today that Toronto Marlies center Nazem Kadri has been selected as the CCM/AHL Player of the Week for the period ending Nov. 18, 2012.
Kadri tallied eight points (one goal, seven assists) and a plus-3 rating in four games last week, sparking the Marlies to a 3-1-0-0 record.
After picking up an assist in a 6-5 overtime win at Oklahoma City on Tuesday, Kadri tallied two helpers in Friday’s 6-3 loss at Hamilton. In Saturday’s nationally televised rematch with the Bulldogs, Kadri tied a franchise record with four assists – including three on the power play – and was named the game’s first star in a 6-1 Toronto victory.… read more
He was the Leafs' leading scorer in the 1963–64, 1966–67 and 1969–70 seasons, and the team's top goal scorer in 1970–71 and 1972–73. Keon was considered one of the fastest skaters in the NHL, and one of the best defensive forwards of his era. He would usually play against the opposing team's top centre, and developed a reputation for neutralizing some of the league's top scorers. In 1970–71, he scored eight shorthanded goals, setting an NHL record.
I hear Kadri's name in potential trade with Vancouver. If that happens I will be ticked off. He will be a good NHL player.
I think it depends on how well Kadri comes into camp. I think if he comes to camp and plays well he will stay, but if he comes in to camp and falters even a little bit I think he will be shipped out. I think Kadri will be a leaf this season and will play well. I also think a deal for Lou gets done without Kadri.
