from Jeff Blair of the Globe and Mail,
And now along comes Kadri, who is under the mistaken impression that because the 22-year-old centre feels he was screwed around by the organization, it’s time to make it all back. At least, that’s the way it’s been allowed to be portrayed in the media.
If Kadri isn’t taking to Twitter to “correct” information being dispensed by people who cover the team on a daily basis, or insiders with solid track records (such as TSN’s Bob McKenzie), he’s standing in front of microphones and cameras and breaking what at one-point was a self-imposed embargo.
The Maple Leafs would be guilty of stupidity if they were they not leaking details of negotiations because, well, that’s the way these things go. It’s all about public positioning.
Kadri has fussed about the inaccuracy of reports he wants John Tavares money (six years, $33-million U.S.) but even if those figures are skewed a bit, the mathematics of Kadri’s negotiations are fairly easy to figure out.
