    Dubas' has put a Leaf team together that is focused almost entirely on skill and is more like what you'd assemble in the OHL. They don't have enough grit and perhaps Kadri needs some help on the ice dealing with teams, like Boston, who take advantage of that.

    Good hit by Debrusk. Think that pissed Kadri off, that it was a good hit.

    This happened because refs didn’t call any penalties throughout the whole game, debrusk knee to knees kadri earlier in the game.

    I feel like Kadri is very expendable this off season in order to sign Marner. I won’t miss him that much. He makes dumb decisions like this in the biggest games.

  • claimguy


    Il y a 3 mois

    CROSS CHECK TO THE HEAD, GUYS. Stop blaming the refs for a clear eject-able offense by an immature punk. Hit on Marleau was clean. What happened up to that point in the game did not cause Kadri to become stupid - he's always been that way.

  • Nick Vrock

    Tell me how Debrusk has illegally checked, concussed, and fought dozens of people and nothing happens. Kadri gives him a taste of his own medicine and is suspended. I'm sick and tired of the blind, single sided refs that have ben overseeing the playoff games this season. Absolutely pathetic

    The first round games have been so physical and dirty. Toronto, Tampa Bay, Winnipeg, Nashville, Dallas, San Jose. All have been physical but these teams have taken it to another level. But that’s playoff hockey I guess...

    Kadri needs to be suspended permanently he is a recurring offender and will cause permanent damage to someone some day ! Same thing happened last year on wingels ! Purposely going for someone's head on multiple occasions needs to be reviewed and the nhl needs to take him out of the game !

  • Cormorant_on_aRock

    it was really bizarre to me how he played possum there! 0:10. Cowardly and not surprising that he would choose to do it, but downright bizarre how *good* he was at it. What a nut job. That guy is a psychopath and he shouldn't be allowed to subject everyone to it.

    So, three for this, but one for bouncing a guy's head off the boards? The NHL is light years behind in the player discipline category. Your punishment is directly related to your talent level. If I'm Kadri, I'm steaming, especially considering that there's a guy on the other side who could shoot someone and escape suspension (looking at you 63).
