It doesn't matter what age though. This is what we call textbook overhyping. You don't just slap on a label even if you didn't intend to say that he'll be just as good. Perhaps it's just me, but you can't just compare a rookie to a HHOFer unless they reach a close enough level of production. It's just too ridiculous.
I thought in general Kelly Hrudey had a real solid outing tonight. Has he been doing color commentary all season long?
Oh I'm not hating on him. I just wanted to point out that one thing he said. Didn't agree with him on that point, but he wasn't bad. I'm not sure if he's been doing color commentary but I would prefer him over Hughson and Simpson any day of the week.
When did Dougie ever show up for a season fat and out of shape? Just kidding of course, having some fun. It's pretty high praise to say there's a bit of Dougie in Kadri, but probably wishful thinking. Gilmour played all out, all the time and had the heart of a champion. Kadri? Not yet anyway. After his fast start he's really cooled off and looking more like the Kadri of old, 8 good games doesn't cut it when you're comparing him to a Leaf legend.
