“Are you happy now that Randy Carlyle is no longer your coach?”
The question, directed at Toronto Maple Leafs forward Nazem Kadri, comes out of left field and spurs Leafs TV’s Paul Hendrick to mock-check his Twitter feed for some breaking news he might have missed.
The questioner, perhaps a victim of too much talk radio or an HBO viewer who drew conclusions from last year’s...
Nazem Kadri will be at the Air Canada Centre Wednesday to join in the latest episode of the Ice Bucket Challenge craze taking the NHL by storm.
But in about three weeks, he hopes to be making a different kind of splash — at Maple Leafs training camp. And he says he’s been working harder than ever this summer to elevate his game to another level.
“I’m working hard on my...

A brief survey of NHL execs suggests that the Florida Panthers might get off the No. 1 pick in the draft, but they won’t get off it for anything along the lines of a much-floated rumour out there: the Leafs’ No. 8 pick, plus defenceman Jake Gardiner and centre Nazem Kadri. The way the scenario goes (at least in the imagination of Leafs’ brass...
You can add yet another name to the St. Louis Blues Rumor Mill. According to a statement made by Nick Kypreos on Hockey Central, the Toronto Maple Leafs have apparently spoken with the Blues about Patrik Berglund. The name floated back in return was Nazem Kadri.
The segment also mentioned Ryan Kesler and that the Vancouver Canucks would reportedly want T.J. Oshie in any deal involving...
Could the Predators make some moves with the Toronto Maple Leafs? (Photo from Flagkingsports.com)
There has been a lot of speculating here in the Predators Blogosphere lately. Time to keep it going.
While everyone speculates on what could happen in Ottawa with Jason Spezza or in Vancouver with Ryan Kesler, another Canadian city is preparing for a big offseason. And they could be...
This just in from Eric Duhatschek of the Globe & Mail, more talk that Toronto Maple Leafs GM Dave Nonis would be willing to trade Nazem Kadri or Jake Gardiner.
“You have the sense that Maple Leafs GM David Nonis would happily move two of his youngsters, Nazem Kadri and Jake Gardiner, in the right deal…”
Duhatschek is one of those reasonable, smart veteran reporters...
The Toronto Maple Leafs’ offseason began on April 13th. As with the 13 other NHL clubs to fail to make the postseason, the Leafs have had a lot of time since then to sit back and contemplate where it all went wrong.
The Leafs looked primed to qualify for the Stanley Cup playoffs for the second year in a row, a feat that has not been accomplished since the 2003-04 season. An entertaining...
As mentioned earlier, the Maple Leafs are rumored to be shopping major players (and a majorly expensive player) to the Panthers for the first overall pick. That isn’t all that GM Dave Nonis is reportedly considering.
As a follow-up to that terrible trade rumor (Phaneuf, Kadri, and the Leafs’ eighth overall pick to Florida for the first overall pick and Ed Jovanovski), it seems...

There are rumors spreading around the NHL that Dion Phanuef and Nazem Kadri might headed to the Florida Panthers. If this deal were to come to fruition the Panthers would also get the 8th pick in this years NHL Draft and then the Maple Leafs would get the 1st pick in the draft in exchange. Potential deal:

The Toronto Maple Leafs are always a team to watch in the offseason because of their willingness to make bold moves in the free agent and trade markets.
The summer of 2014 should be no different, and according TSN’s Darren Dreger, the Original Six club is “eager to talk” with teams about potential trades.
Some trade discussion with teams on a number of Leafs players. Kadri...
TORONTO (AP) Nazem Kadri scored 2:51 into overtime and the Toronto Maple Leafs beat the Boston Bruins 4-3 on Thursday night.
from the CP at The Hockey News,
"We like to know what spot we're in and what position we're in," Kadri said. "We understand where we're at and where we need to go, so tonight's an important building step in that direction, so we've got to make sure we come out ready to go."
Kadri reiterated what defenceman Jake Gardiner said Wednesday...
You have probably seen the 'after' picture (below) of Dale Weise, who took Nazem Kadri's skate to his face last night.
Here is how it happened and scroll to the 1:45 mark for a slow-motion replay.

The Toronto Maple Leafs haven’t been able to catch a win in Florida yet this week, but Nazem Kadri did snag something while in the Sunshine State.
After falling to the Florida Panthers on Tuesday, the Leafs headed out to the high seas on their off day Wednesday during their team’s annual Fathers’ Trip. The boys didn’t put on a very good show for their dads in the first game...
Toronto Leafs forward Nazem Kadri hits the Senators Cody Ceci from behind and then passes the puck out front to forward Joffrey Lupul who scores a goal. However, there should have been no goal on the play. Kadri should have been given a penalty on the play. This goal tied the game 2-2. The Leafs would go on to win the game 6-3.
Toronto Maple Leafs forward Nazem Kadri did not win over any Ottawa Senators fans Saturday night.
During the second period, Kadri tied up the game, but it wasn’t the goal that had the Sens up in arms — it was what led up to the goal. Late in the second period, Senators defenseman Cody Ceci was playing the puck behind the net. As his back was turned, Kadri came in hard and hammered...
Randy Carlyle said it was the best performance he had seen in a long time. Yup, it was one of those nights for Nazem Kadri.
The 23-year-old center had three assists, and the Toronto Maple Leafs beat the Florida Panthers 6-3 on Thursday for their fifth consecutive home victory.
Kadri has two goals and five assists during a four-game point streak. He picked up his 100th career assist...

Nazem Kadri’s point total and play are certainly down this year, but you wouldn’t be able to tell by watching the entirety of Tuesday night’s game at the Air Canada Centre.
Kadri was the first star of the game for a good reason, propelling the Leafs to a 3-2 win against a hot Tampa team that was previously on a three-game winning streak.
The post Nazem Kadri flashes sweet hands...
Daily observers of the Maple Leafs have been wondering whether Nazem Kadri and Joffrey Lupul would start to click more often than not.
Perhaps we started to get the answer on Tuesday night at the Air Canada Centre.
Kadri scored two goals as he and Lupul were dangerous on most shifts, leading the Leafs to a 3-2 win against the visiting Tampa Bay Lightning before a crowd of 19,475...
Nazem Kadri scored twice and James van Riemsdyk got the go-ahead goal late in the third period to lift the Toronto Maple Leafs over the Tampa Bay Lightning 3-2 on Tuesday night.
Jonathan Bernier made 40 saves in his first career start against the Lightning. Van Riemsdyk one-timed Phil Kessel's feed past goalie Ben Bishop at 15:57 of the third for his team-leading 21st goal....

Those. Were. Some. Extremely. Nifty. Mittens. Above is Nazem's Kadri's second goal from the Toronto Maple Leafs' 3-2 win over the Tampa Bay Lightning. And no they didn't win it in a shootout, they won in regulation. What a "Datsyukian deke that was!"I said recently that consistent point production from Kadri is key for the Leafs' success. Did some primary...
Perhaps the Toronto Maple Leafs should think about trading Nazem Kadri a little more often.
A little after a week since GM Dave Nonis said he would be “willing to trade” the 23-year-old, Kadri has scored 5 points in 3 games, producing physical, committed performances. In short, he’s played like someone desperate to prove himself as a valued member of the organization.
Nazem Kadri has been in the midst of trade rumours for the last couple weeks and has been criticized a lot by the Toronto media. He quieted the critics yesterday though in his great performance against the rival Montreal Canadiens. The Leafs center had two assists, including a very nifty setup to defenseman Cody Franson in the first period. Toronto went on to win 5-3, their fourth...
