Its obviouse that Kadri is a hockey savant, not to bright around the edges elsewhere. Kid probably set his clock back an hour instead of ahead and woke up late.  I put more blame on the clocks shifts in spring and fall than Kadri being anything else but the kid he is.

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.

I know what you mean.  It's almost like people are making assumptions given the lack of information available to them.

We've all been late for one thing or another.  Unfortunately for Kadri, he picked just about the worst possible time to do it.  Given how much Horachek has been blowing up at the team - accusing them of playing soft, having no character, etc. - he probably couldn't have let this slip even if he wanted to.

My assumption then is that he was so angered with the lack of effort the team gave on Saturday that he spent the entire night tossing and turning and only got a couple hours of shut-eye which is why he slept through his alarm.

Are you trying to say that his give-a-shit meter hasn't flat lined yet?   ;)

Management has Horachek's back.

It's a pretty telling move. You don't discipline a player you don't want to keep/develop to this extent.

He was arguably their best all-round player this year and he's an RFA this Summer.

Good luck with that.

It's not like Shanahan to draw such insane conclusions.

Sure you do. Obviously we don't know the whole story here but what the Leafs do with Kadri here does not just apply to Kadri, it's also sending a message to everyone else in the organization.

Well that obviously changes things. Kadri's a heck of a player, and it still seems like the Leafs have him in their long-term plans. Hopefully whatever it is that caused this is something Nazem can fix.

I certainly hope a little bit of context comes out of this.  Right now this adds a whole crap tonne of chaos to a team that is already a joke.  I get sending messages to the organization but the notion that they come through the punishment of a single player concerns me.  Or this is all justified against Kadri but I'd certainly like some context to amount to a 3-game suspension.

I wouldn't be surprised if it was just a bunch of little things coupled with the most recent thing and they want to nip it in the bud completely because they want to keep him long-term.

That's completely guessing though.  I don't think it really helps or changes things to tell the media/fans everything though - it's a story regardless.

Full quotes from Shanahan:

"Naz is an important part of our future," Shanahan told reporters. "...We expect a certain level of professionalism from him. It's time for him to start making better decisions. There's a history here."

“There’s more to this, obviously,” Shanahan said. “If this were just a case of Nazem being 15 minutes late for a meeting, one time, you could probably sweep this under the rug and handle it internally.”

“…Naz is an important part of our future. We like Nazem Kadri. His teammates like him. We expect a certain level of professionalism. It’s time for him to start making better decisions. There’s a history here.”
