    Agreed. Kadri was an absolute fiesty beast, but he showed zero of that last year in the regular season. Last year was brutal for him, and invisible most of the nights. Was very disappointing to see as a big Kadri fan/supporter.

    That being said, I was watching Kadri's biggest hits/fights on youtube and he was a beast.

    He's just been okay.

    Thankfully, Naz has also been just okay. Altogether, if they've played similar well, at least Kerfoot is 4 years younger & $1m/year cheaper.

    i think kerfoot ended being the steal of that deal..... if all we got was barrie everyone would be scream for the GM's head. look he has problems but like kappy hes looks like a wonder on the 3rd line we has problems going up the lineup.

    as for the kadri comparison: look OBVIOUSLY kadri is better overall player using the eye test but the stats paint a different story
    kadri 5 goals, 4 assists , 26 pim, 35 shots, 56% facoff, 51% CF, 0 +/-, 17:30min avg, 1blocks, 17 hits, 4 TA, 4GA
    kerfoot, 5 goals, 3 assists, 16 pim, 24 shots, 48% faceoff, 56% CF, 5 +\- , 14min avg, 6blocks, 14 hits, 3 TA, 4 GV

    so basically kadri has 1 extra point playing 3 minutes more a game and top powerplay time with some of the best players in the league. also has 10 min PIM and a whole 3 extra hits considering hes "tougher" a 0 +\-. color me unimpressed by kadri's stats.



    kerfoot overall needs to be better defensive for sure but offensivly we cant complain. Mick, kerf and kappy might be the best 3rd line in the league.


    as for the morons saying avs traded him because he had a crappy playoffs, really thats your argument ? do i need to list the hundreds of players who had bad playoffs over the years ? including kadri who has a terrible 3 goals in 19 playoff games.

    - Kadri actually has 26 hits, compared to Kerfoot's 18.
    - Kadri has 2 fights already this season, which is why he has 10 extra PIM.
    - That extra 10% in face-offs wins is pretty nice to have for our 3C (Kadri's 57% compared to Kerfoot's 47%)

    We won the trade, but IMO we can't act like Kadri isn't the exact player we need. He's exactly the type of player everyone here is whining for. Colorado is going to use him as a winger beside MacKinnon too, something we never experimented here in Toronto.

    - hockeyreference says your wrong.
    - sure "fights"
    - sure 56% but its an anomaly. hes a career 48% and only has 1 complely year of over 50%.

    again id rather have kadri because hes better Overall but its so close and considering the cap hit its almost a wash.

    I love Kadri -but theres no denying he has poor decision making AND is a marked man by the refs.

    Not a great combination for certain situations (like a tense playiff series.

    If the aavs make the playoffs i wont blink ifnhes suspended in the first round again

    Yup because that line knew how to pump Kadri up and use his own momentum against himself like a matador does with a bull.

    I like him too but I'd prefer someone bigger as 3c. He's got nice hands around the net.

    Kerfoots low IQ was on display once again. Taking that penalty, at that time of game is inexcusable. Doesn’t understand the situation. Also was a total non factor.. because Vegas is a real team. Soft, weak board play.. the Leafs need a bigger #3 center. Kerfoot is too undersized to play a mans game.

    I wouldn't worry about that poster. Obviously not who he pretends to be, and pretty clearly either someone with absolutely no hockey knowledge, or just a troll who posts something totally ridiculous and runs away and hides.

    Ignore is the best option.

    - NHL.com says you're wrong :laugh:
    - You weren't angry when Matthews got a headshot, or when Andersen got run over? I'm the biggest advocate for skill > physicality, but even I know you need a skilled physical player in your lineup (right now it's Muzzin for us but ideally would like a forward as well). 99% of Leaf fans on here complain about wanting a Wilson in the lineup to protect their stars and play a skilled game. That was Kadri.
    - 57% this year, 55% last year, and 50% the year before. Recent years says he's improved greatly.

    I wouldn't call it a wash at all. Kadri for Kerfoot, right no, is not remotely close. Kerfoot's going to continue to get better and better as he's only 24 years old, so they could be equivalent in the future. But as of now, they're not close.

    That being said, I can imagine Kerfoot becoming Tyler Johnson for us. That'd be fantastic.

    Kadri wasn't even close to a deterrent. DeBrusk actually made a dirty hit on Marleau to goad Kadri into taking a penalty/suspension on him

    I would think that Hyman plays with Tavares and Marner to continue the chemistry from last season.

    You are spectacularly consistent, are you this sunny in real life? I'm loving your upbeat attitude

    Those Vegas guys play big boy hockey alright, sure we beat them and it was a very even game but they really showed us how men play the game

    I mean next time they may even win

    He played top PP minutes and scored some goals, but he is not a great player. Hes okay, Kerfoot has the potential to be better overall and IMO already is.

    I don’t care about his “IQ”. I am talking hockey IQ. He does nothing well. Literally nothing. The deeper the season goes the more Kerfoot will get exposed. Dubas would’ve been the ONLY GM in the league to trade anything of value for Kerfoot.

    Watching Kerfoot play is like watching a small dog trying to chase a car. He’s not built for playoff hockey or to play in the “trenches” as a center. The stiffer the competition the worse he will fade. You got a preview last night. Definition of a liability. When playoffs roll around and the matchup game intensifies, it becomes very easy for teams to have a major mismatch against Kerfoot. Dubas, who knows nothing about hockey or coaching wouldn’t understand this. Having Kadri, who can slot in anywhere in the lineup makes Babcocks life so much easier.
