I'm just going to assume that Kadri figured that the meeting would be about how awful the entire team played last night and for the past few weeks and he thought "why the heck do I have to be there?".

It wouldn't surprise me in the least that the partying is having a huge heavy hand in all of this.

Has there been any reports of Kadri being a party-guy? Like at all? Ever?

No.  Total speculation.  Although it's not directed just towards Kadri but the entire team.  Did the Leafs do better on the road because there they're under the management's nose while at a hotel?  How much partying goes on?   Booze?  Drugs?  Lack of sleep?  How is this impacting the game?  My uncle use to drink with an ex-Leaf.  They both died from it.  Sometimes the Fuhr, Salming, Kordic stuff comes out.  For every story you hear, I bet there's dozens you don't hear about.

The Leafs are 8-21-5 on the road, 18-14-0 at home.

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.

I agree

I disagree.

Whatever the failures of other players may be (and we are all well aware of them), they have nothing to do with this incident. This is not an exec rise in relativism. If it were, we could all agree that they are all less than they should be.

The fact is that after a two month slump of legendary proportions in which most players figuratively fail to appear for games, Kadri actually fails to appear the day following the most vacant fan numbing collective # mail it it games I have ever had the misfortune to see.

Whatever the sins of the other may be then, Kadri's nonchalant I don't give a rat's ass attitude should be considered on its own and not relative to the other turds on this roster.

Kadri needs to know the message he is sending has been received and is not welcome.

As for the rest of them, their turns will come, perhaps not soon enough, but ...

Yes.  Horachek's got nothing to lose, and he would do all of us a good turn by truly holding guys accountable when they don't put in a proper effort.  Unfortunately, we wouldn't be able to ice more than 5 or 6 guys if that were the case.

Wouldn't be shocked if Kadri gets sat out in the next game. You can't have players doing this kind of stuff. Horachek has nothing to lose right now & I wouldn't blame him.

You gotta worry about younger players on this roster with all the half-assed play & behaviour that has gone on this year. This isn't what you want young guys soaking up. What are young guys like Reilly picking up in the bigger picture?

If I or we suggested that they had something to do with this incident, you might have had a point.

I have no problem with Kadri being disciplined. Never said I did.

As for the rest of them, their turns will come, perhaps not soon enough, but ...

If their turn hadn't arrived before Saturday's game against the Blues, it certainly arrived before that game was over. And I find what some of these guys did (or didn't do) in that game and in the games leading up to that game far, far more troubling than what Kadri did.

I was fortunate enough to see Cup wins in the 60s. I reflected on where I'd place this debacle in my Leafs history. I don't think it's the least talented team by a fair measure. But I think it's my least favorite Leafs team ever ... because they don't seem to give a crap.

In a number of those original six match ups during the season, I swear the intensity and mutual dislike was greater than a number of games sevens I've seen in the last decade. They really wanted to win those games and played their hearts out. And those games were played by many guys who made less money in their entire hockey career than the $122,000 per game Phil Kessel got for sulking on Saturday night.

Makes me wonder how much more of this I want to witness.

Sports are weird.  People draw insane conclusions over a person sleeping in and being 20 minutes late to something.  Lack of character! Nonchalant attitude! Doesn't care!

Or, you know, the person was just late to something one time.

Showing up late for a team meeting is one thing.

Don't bother to show up for 30 plus games on the ice is another. I'm not saying Kadri is the team leader in doing that. I am saying players who have been doing that bug me a heck of a lot more.

Kadri is not the leader at not competing during games, however, at times, he's been a follower of this trend.  Kadri might have to be considered as one of the players belonging to the rotten core.
