Brendan Shanahan Says Nazem Kadri Will Be A Healthy Scratch For The Next Two Games

via Ian Shantz tweets,

Shanahan says Kadri won't play next two games.

"There's more to this (then late for meeting.)"

Shanahan says "there's a history here" regarding Kadri. "Incidents like this won't be tolerated."

Shanahan: "The easiest thing to do would be to sweep this under the rug. We would not be doing Naz a service if we did that."

Shanahan insists Kadri has a future with Leafs.

"This is a moment when I player has to look in the mirror and make some decisions." — Shanahan on Kadri. Surprise address done.

added 11:58am, Peter Horachek addresses the Kadri situation below, then does the Scotty Bowman trick and changes the subject.

Also, watch Brendan Shanahan below as he announces Kadri out for at least two games.

By looking at all the charming people in the Maple Leafs organization there is no chance that Kadri reacted to some kind of unfair treatment towards him or another team mate. I am sure players are lining up to play for the Leafs

Makes sense, as the Leafs are in the midst of the franchise’s greatest chase, the chase for Connor McDavid.

Next thing they’ll be putting Kessel in goal and Shanny will lace up to start as the top line center.

If the Toronto Maple Leafs didn’t exist we’d have to invent them.

This clown coaching the Leafs should go back to the rock he climbed out from under and quit impersonating any NHL coach. They probably screw up the McDavid thing as well. Thank fully I still remember 1967. Unfortunately the things going on with the Leafs now will still be going on at this time next year. Shanny should go back to being Sheriff.
