I meant his actual name though. Its nazem not nazeem.
They explained it on the Leafs broadcast. They said the announcer in Philly couldn't pronounce Kadri's name properly and kept referring to him as Nazeem instead of Nazem, which lead to his teamates ribbing him by calling him "Nazeem the Dream."
Give Kadri the assist on Kessel's goal it went off him!
His point streak needs to continue!
I agree! I thought the puck bouncing off of Kadri's stick looked pretty obvious when the goal happened and I was surprised when they didn't credit him.
It's doubly frustrating because the AHL took that assist away from Kadri early in the season; about 5 or 6 days after the game took place.
I'm being a Kadri homer on this but it's a point streak and I'd feel the same way if it was any other leaf who had one going.
I wouldn't say it was his only issue but I do think he did need some help with that. I think he's done wonders with his body and has done everything that has been asked of him when it comes to his conditioning.
He sees a weakness and works hard to improve on it, that is the sign of a great player.
