Made good use ... that's a good way of putting it. I don't think he came close to "completely derailing" though. The one thing I always liked about Kadri is that the effort always seemed to be there, he was always near the top of the list as far as how often players on the team "showed up to play". And while none of us can know how serious these off-ice issues were, the fact that he was so consistent in his effort suggests to me that they weren't so bad, that perhaps it was more a matter of perception (represent the team proudly on and off the ice). Nobody saw the suspension coming, he did his time and continued on as if it had never happened. That's hardly a player close who's close to "derailing". Nice post!
