Love Kadri. I hope he works on

1) Faceoffs
2) Consistency <-- ?? Not sure how you work on that but it's a must for him

Would LOVE LOVE LOVE to see a line composed of

JVR - Kadri - Kessel

IMO that's a real top pairing. Big Bodies Power-forward, Young Playmaking Centre and Elite Sniper. Wow.

I would argue he was our most consistent offensive threat all year. Second only to Kessel if anyone.

with Kadri i think what's most important is his strength and skating....when i watch him play he tends to fall a lot! (not sure if hes trying to draw a penalty or if a brisk wind picked him off his skates). But if his skating improves (its good right now) combined with his increased strength i really think it can add another dimension to his game in terms of driving the net/ board work and really giving him that extra gear against tight checking teams. The Boston series was a good example..Kadri would have been far more effective throughout the series if his legs didnt give out on him every time a boston player would lean on him

44% is piss poor for faceoffs, should be in the high 40's at worst after a while.

lots of centres arent great at faceoffs, but the top centres in the league are at least capable of 47% or more, most are 48-51% kind of guys which is where he should be.

Yep, Kadri does seem to fall a lot. He needs to improve on lower body strength. His legs look downright spindly, and even as a slender guy he does look a little top heavy proportionately.
