carlyle said his philosophy (and he held true to it in his stint last season) that if you lose a top 6 guy to injury, you call up a guy who plays top 6 in ahl and you play him in the top 6(i.e the role he usually plays and is good at). he was crushed when due to roster constraints, kadri was sent down to the ahl level to finish out the year. he wanted to keep kadri up there the rest of the season(even if it was ten or so games). He was impressed and figured kadri would lock down a spot out of camp if he kept it up. do i think kadri will ultimately play top 6 for the leafs? debateable, but i do think he gets a spot this year and either he is showcased for trade or he flops (i.e faceplants out of the gates and gets sent back down).
Time is running out but not gone yet, i think he has 2 years to prove he belongs at the next level or not. so taking into consideration carlyle wants him there, wants him top 6 at that, thats enough for me to add him if he starts out on the leafs out of camp. i wont hesitate to cut bait if he flounders, but i think he is defiantly going to be a hot add at some point of the waiver wire.
