So...about Kadri...

3 games played, and he's looking more stellar by the game, not exactly playing against weak rosters either...

Could he theoretically play himself onto this roster into a top 6 role?

I think he at least deserves the 9 games.

London. I love this kid but London is the way to go. Next year this kid is going to be even better which is scary right now.

I would really like it if he made the team, but if i was a betting man, i would say he doesn't make it, and i agree i would like him to at least get those 9 game.

Don't see a spot for him in the top-six. Start with London.

i also agree with london. I think his game is at par with nhl level but he needs to grow (mentally)....
Well now that i think of it, maybe in size too.

as good as he has been .. he'll learn a lot more playing another year in the O and with team Canada...he also needs to get a little bigger. One more year.

9 games to see how far he is from regular season NHL level.

While he looks good now, I think an 82 game NHL schedule would wear him down and hurt his development as a hockey player. Another year in the OHL and maturing is needed for him to handle a full season physically. There's no reason to rush this guy.

No way he plays for the Leafs this year...it's back to London for him. Whether or not he gets the nine games depends on whether or not Burke and Wilson have already decided where he's going to end up ultimately this year. If its still up in the air, he'll get a shot, but I have a feeling that his extra year of Junior has already been decided upon.

Ugh, I accidently chose the `Should go to junior immediately after preseason `option (wanted to choose the `Should get his 9 games, and then back down` option).

In terms of offensive and defensive capabilities, I certainly think he is ready to be a NHL regular (obviously improving in both facets as the season goes on), but I do not think he is physically ready just yet. Let him refine his offense and defense in the OHL, lead London to a possible Memorial Cup and Team Canada during the WJCs.......There is no reason for Burke to rush Nazem.

Still 90% he goes back to London. If he goes absolutely nuts the rest of the way in camp they might give him a few real games.

He needs another year in junior. He'll be twice as good next year, his offensive skills will develop much better in the O than they will in the big leagues.

I'm curious, has anyone heard about how the other prospects picked ahead of Kadri have been doing in the pre-season so far?

London, no matter how well he performs in the pre-season. We have top six option.

Send him down to a place where we know he will shine.

The addition of Kessel should make Burke think twice about Kadri.

Not all of Bozak, Stalberg and Kadri can stay. I think only one of the three stays and my mind is telling me it's Bozak.

Send Kadri down, and tell him to work on using his team-mates more to open up his game.

Unless two of Stajan, Bozak, and Grabo (3 if you want to include J.Mitchell as a possible top 6er) completely crap the bed in the remaining 5 pre-season games, Kadri should be in Sarnia on October 1st, suiting up for the Knights.

He looks good, but there's absolutely no need to rush him, especially when there's pretty much no room for him on the team if said players perform up to par. Let him continue to grow as a Center in London, then come back next September ready to center one of our top two lines.

Send him down immediately after preseason.

Give him 9 games next year.

Full time the year after, if he doesn't make it after 9 next year.

thank god he has been really good. very encouraging, and tempting

but it's really a no brainer that London is the best place for him this year. I'd like to see Kadri - Hall at Team Canada as well.

I really hopes he plays 9 games. If he keeps playing like he is now they would have no reason to send him down. But part of me really wants to see him at the WJC.
