I've seen "a little bit of Gilmour in Kadri" all along...and I'm seeing more Gilmour in him as he progresses. Not a direct comparison but you'd have to be blind to not see any similarities in style and snarl.

I do not know why people are being so hard on the OP. He didn't say Kadri is the next Gilmour. I agree, Kadri does have something a little Gilmourish about him.

Gilmour won a Selke. Kadri will never come close to that.

But aside from the defensive game (which Kadri HAS improved mind-you, I just want to be clear that Gilmour was among the best in the league in that regard), they have some similarities. Small-ish but feisty and highly skilled. Though Gilmour was more skilled and probably a little bit more feisty.

He seriously reminds me a bit of gilmour. SOme pretty solid skill..not afraid to hit...nice hands...solid passing and some real heart

Anyone feel the same or am I dreaming of killer too much?
They are both feisty and centers but that's where it ends. Gilmour was smaller, a much better defensive player, better playmaker, but did not have Kadri's shot or one-on-one moves.

Gilmour in his prime was a top 5 player in the NHL with 100+ point seasons. I doubt Kadri will reach this level.

Kadri does make some Gilmour-esque passes imho...

Was thinking of the Dos Equis guy last night when he hit Emelin: I don't hit often but when I do, you're going through a wall.

It's a tough comparison, but I can see what you're getting at. I think we'll just have wait and see. Parts of his game do remind me a bit of Killer

Gilmour's skating ability was a fine art. Kadri has a long way to go to be that.

His passing and offensive awareness are similar.

Gilmour's flatter stick made for solid backhands and good defensive play. so many NHLers could learn from that.

on that note Orr's shot on Price last night was a back hand. stopped, but not easy to control the rebound. Holzer with a nice little gimme.

Kadri is developing. No pressure on him as long as he plays a team game with Carlyle.Thats what will be gold to his developement a few years down the road.I'm just waiting to see how strong he becomes.

11/8 on face-offs last night. Bozak was a blistering 19/4 though lol. If we get Kadri winning face-offs consistantly like that every game it will be fun to watch.

It's a fair comparison as far as playing styles go IMO

and i think the OP sufficiently caveated that that was what he was trying to compare...not necessarily career expectations

Yes but Dougie was superior in this area. Kadri has a better shot. Kadri is also a better one-on-one player with some fantastic moves. Dougie could carry the puck through the neutral zone with ease but wasn't a good one-on-one. Dougie was a better skater, better defensively and much better in the corners. Kadri is a fine player -- been chirping for him to get his chance for years -- but he's more of a sniper+playmaker -- Dougie din't have a lot of snipe in him. He scored with dekes and rebounds etc. more than rockets from the slot.

No.

Why does everyone have to be compared to someone else? Kadri is making a name for himself as Kadri.

Ahahahaha

Guy on the smallish side for the NHL throws a hit once in a while and now he is Doug Gilmour.

I admit it Kadri has impressed me some this year and I hope he can keep it up and be a legitimate first or second line center because previously I was really having my doubts about that.. but come on guys.

To be fair its just a few being extremely rude and I dont get why. Its a harmless viewpoint either you agree or you dont. No big deal. Id like to see mods start infracting and banning these members to be honest. It does not make people feel very welcome and if anything its outright trolling and negativity for no reason.

There are a lot of good responses in this thread so lets not take away from it totally

He does have "the eye of the Dougie", doesn't he...

Feisty little bugger ain't scared to go in the rough areas. That's what playing in the A will do to you. Probably the dirtiest league on the planet lol!

Is that why Dougie was drafted in the 7th round and Kadri was drafted 7th overall. Interesting that Dougie didn't have his breakout year until the 5th year after he was drafted. Kadri is in his 4th year. Dougie became a huge star, but to s**** on Kadri before he's had the same chance is plain silly. We can only hope that Kadri becomes a Gilmour but to project that he will never reach that level is crazy. Just like many on this site last year didn't believe Kadri was anything more than a winger and would never play center.

I think it's a little early to be making comparisons like this.

Great - did you predict in 1982 that Dougie was going to win the Selke?

After the first couple games of the season I was going to make a thread with this exact same subject matter. I decided against it due to fear of backlash, but I do agree that his game is akin to that of Gilmour. He certainly has a long way to go to prove that he is worthy of that comparison though.

Hands, vision, work ethic, hard-hitting centers.
