Kadri and Maple Leafs still not on same page
The ongoing saga of the Nazem Kadri contract negotiations has become a more pressing affair with training camp set to begin this week, and the Toronto Maple Leafs appear to be sticking to their guns in regards to the valuation of the young forward.
It was previously believed that Kadri was seeking a long-term deal, so there's movement on his end in this report. This also bridges a perceived gap in the total amount of the contract, meaning the two sides may be nearing some semblance of compromise, though clearly not there yet.
If a deal is not reached, don't expect to see Kadri at training camp later this week.
