Kadri and his linemates Leo Komarov and Patrick Marleau have not found chemistry in the preseason and coach Mike Babcock wants more from the trio, reports the Toronto Sun.

EDGE Analysis

As usual, Babcock was blunt in his assessment Thursday: "That line has to be better. That group can be way better, way quicker. They have to upgrade. We need Naz to be really good for us to be effective. That group has to find some chemistry and get going." Kadri is working to get reads off of new linemate Marleau and it is a process. There is still a chance that Babcock will toy with Marleau on the top line, but expect the team to focus on gelling Kadri with Marleau to start the season.

Kadri arrived at the Toronto training camp in the best shape of his career, reports the Toronto Sun.

EDGE Analysis

"The first thing he did was he got in shape," coach Mike Babcock said Thursday. Now, that's not to infer Nazzy was out of shape last season. Babcock clarified right away: "I think Naz had the best summer (of preparation) since I have known him, for sure. You arrive with legs and you feel like you are getting going and you get some traction." Kadri has thrived in an abrasive, defensive role and set career marks with 32 goals and 61 points last season. All while driving opposing stars like Alexander Ovechkin and Connor McDavid snaky. Kadri's commitment to offseason training is a reflection of his maturity as a man and player. He understands the commitment Babcock has made to him and he wants to continue to be an impact player. Fantasy owners will reap the rewards of this commitment this season.

Kadri scored a goal and assisted on the game-winning tally in overtime against Washington on Monday.

EDGE Analysis

Kadri has been tasked with slowing down Washington's top line, and while it hasn't been a complete success, Toronto sports a 2-1 series lead. It's also difficult to discredit Kadri after his significant role in Monday's Game 3-comeback win. Keeping his defensive responsibilities in mind, the center's offensive numbers might continue to be hit or miss, but Kadri's been finding ways to score all year long while matching up against the opposition's best players.
