Didn't realize Kadri was 6', thought he was shorter.

Nope, he's just rail thin. I saw him last year at a Marlies game. Hopefully he's put on some muscle and has better balance. He needs to win more puck battles.

Agreed, although he seemed to fare much better in his 2nd stint last season.

I think he stated in an interview earlier this summer (can't find the video now) that he has worked hard on his lower body strength so I guess we'll find out soon enough!

Sounds like Orr's spot might not be up for grabs;

Tonyambrogio200 Tony Ambrogio #Leafs Colton Orr says he is "fully ready to go" and "do whatever it takes." Over his concussion

jonasTSN1050: Ron Wilson says he'll make at least 30 cuts by Wednesday. He plans to trim group down to 26/27 players by the following Wednesday.

Why would Grabovski be playing in Orr's spot anyway?   HEY-OHHHHHH

@mirtle Wilson: "For sure the playoffs are do-able." Says Lombardi is getting very close and will likely participate in some practices.

Sweet. I feel like finally we have some semblence of a competitive team.

The Lombardi thing is interesting. If he's able to play does that mean Kadri's potential spot is no longer available? Is Bozak bounced to the 4th line?

Uh oh. Here comes another round of misinterpretations of a Ron Wilson/Brian Burke quote.

Even with Lombardi, I only count 11 guys that will be "guaranteed" a spot on the opening day roster, barring a trade of some kind. It may mean that the bottom 6 isn't necessarily made up of 2 defined lines, but rather, a group of 6 guys given ice time situationally.

But where does Lombardi play/who does he bump? I mean, yeah, the 4th line C spot is open but Kadri isn't a candidate and I don't really think Bozak is either.

Like I said, maybe there aren't defined lines in the bottom 6.
