Whether it’s because a new contract is closer or he’s skipping the start of Maple Leafs training camp a week Monday, Nazem Kadri is now keeping mum about money.
Asked on Thursday for an update on talks on Thursday at the practice rink where 15 Leafs and Marlies have been working out, the usually glib Kadri sent out a club intermediary who politely said the young Leafs centre was taking a vow of silence on the topic “until the deal gets done.”
Kadri responds to some of the tweets McKenzie made regarding Kadri's contract status...
"@43_Kadri: @TSNBobMcKenzie false bobo"/Feel free to provide any details, Nazem, but I'm satisfied with info conveyed in my tweets today.
