The Latest On Kadri

via TSN,

As the Toronto Maple Leafs and forward Nazem Kadri work toward a new deal for the upcoming season, it appears it's no longer a matter of term but dollars.

Appearing on 'TSN Drive with Dave Naylor' on TSN Radio 1050 in Toronto on Monday, TSN Hockey Insider Bob McKenzie said Kadri is asking for $7 million over two years while the Maple Leafs are offering $5.7 million over the same timeframe.

Kadri, who had no arbitration rights after completing his entry-level deal in June, was second in team scoring with 44 points in 48 games last season. The Maple Leafs have been at a standstill with Kadri and fellow restricted free agent Cody Franson.

The team has just under $5 million in cap space going into this season.
