TORONTO - In the latest turn in the saga of the Toronto Maple Leafs, forward Nazem Kadri was sent home from practice by an unhappy Peter Horachek for missing a team meeting.

When Kadri showed up late to the team's practice facility, Horachek opted to send him home before practice started Sunday morning. Asked why the 24-year-old centre wasn't on time, the Leafs' interim coach said Kadri was "not prepared. It wasn't the snow."

Kadri's absence, on the first day of daylight saving time, came the morning after a 6-1 loss to the St. Louis Blues. Horachek felt his team put forth "no effort" in the blowout defeat.

The Maple Leafs host the New York Islanders on Monday night, and Horachek said Kadri is available to play — "if I want him."

Trevor Smith took Kadri's spot in line rushes at practice between Leo Komarov and Richard Panik. Kadri was the only healthy player who did not skate.

Horachek was seething after the loss to the Blues but waited until the morning to address players. Holding a short but serious practice on a Sunday morning sent his message.

"That's the message: You're going to have to work, you have to be a pro, you have to show up every day," Horachek said. "You can't show up and put half an effort onto the ice."

Horachek said he thinks players "understand where we are and what we have to do."

It's unfortunate since Kadri has easily been the hardest working player (or at least forward) on the team recently. A few other players should be getting sent home for missing all these games they haven't given a damn about.

But, whatever. He'll probably be scratched in tomorrows game and we'll all forget about this after.

We talkin' bout practice?

No accountability for BS performances that people pay money to watch.  But the accountability starts with practice.


I mean, yeah, Kadri needs to be disciplined for this stuff but how about we sit down the Bozak-Kessel-JVR line for doing absolutely nothing.

I read a note this morning that Horachek sat them briefly in the third last night.  I'm sure that sent a powerful message.

But the timing couldn't be worst for Kadri to miss this meeting.

I'd sit Kessel and JVR, bring up McLaren and Orr, roll them with Sill for 20 minutes a game. Embrace the tank and at least entertain the fans with some pugilism.

How will sitting the top line hold them accountable for anything? If you believe that they aren't playing well because they aren't trying, then having them miss meaningless games at the tail end of a train wreck season is a reward, not a punishment. If anything they should play more.

If you truly believe they aren't trying, then they should be sent home for the year and shipped out in the off season. Just don't expect a good return because nobody wants a loser on their team.

Should have maybe made them play the whole third period last night?  :)

Regarding Kadri, hopefully just a careless mistake on his part and not a sign of a developing problem. He has been one of the few who looked like he cared the past several weeks.
