@Dogger So he's due tonight?

1 day, 21 hours ago on Saturday Mashup: Flyers tonight

@Alec Brownscombe That is a fair assessment and I'm not trying to justify keeping the 1st line together but rather than moving Kadri up why not a guy like Santo who also drives play. He is a dog on the puck and has some good playmaking skills. This allows Kadri to run the 2nd line and give us two legitimate threats. Shut down Kessel or Kadri. At least that's how I look at this situation.

Kadri may very well be the answer for Kessel's line though but we haven't seen enough of it to truly know. I'd be interested to see it over a longer term than what we've seen so far.

@peterbleafs @Dogger He was also arguably the best player on that line last year. His contract is better than any you will see in the league and personally unless the return is amazing I don't move him.

I don't think the question is whether Kadri is a 1C. I think we all know he is the Leafs 1C but the question to me is more along the lines of, "Is the team better with him playing the 2C spot rather than the 1C".

@MaxwellHowe Personally I'd like to see Santo get a shot with Kessel. I think that would be a truly interesting look. Putting Kadri on the 2nd line to spread out the offence a bit more.

@B_Leaf Yeah! I'm not the only crazy one anymore. I'm starting to believe the same thing now.

So watching that play again. It looks like Franson skinned Gerbe and he went flying.. Not really fair because Franson has like 3 feet and 200 lbs on Gerbe...

To reply to myself. I've probably had 1 too many so anything I say is probably dumb at this point.

@Brozak @sniperstar But we need to play that grit with him... Not put them on another line.

I'm going to say it now. Kessel is good and all but Kadri may now be our best player. (He plays both sides of the puck)

@animalres We all get ridiculous when we lose. We are emotionally driven. The next day most of us realize how dumb we were being. Anything said tonight shouldn't be taken seriously for the most part.

@Whalz It's now a pattern that he starts the season slow. he always seems to pick it up later. His PDO is also way below his career average. All of this may come down to bad luck. We see him making mistakes but a lot more of them seem to result in goals than last season.

@Mattmark They literally just need to dump it and go to work. Carolina is stacking their blue line and we are skating into them.

Bozak honestly ... Skate back. He was gliding. Get back and outnumber them. The faster you get it back the faster you move back up ice.
