Nazem Kadri no closer to a landing point
Two weeks into NHL free agency, Nazem Kadri is still without a team and the longer the summer drags on, the more likely the Canadian center will stay in Colorado.
JULIAN MCKENZIE: Nazem Kadri, to this day, is still…
OMAR: Kadri is gonna– Kadri is staying in Colorado, man.
JULIAN MCKENZIE: Yeah, I think that’s– I think he’s staying at this point.
OMAR: He waited too long. How long has it been, like two weeks? So go.
JULIAN MCKENZIE: Like what? Like, come on!
OMAR: He stays.
JULIAN MCKENZIE: Who gives him the bag now? Maybe Calgary.
OMAR: For example, Darren Ferris has a lot of players making a lot of money, so you know, obviously he’s doing something right. But it’s a great example of how his, like, his set, I’m going to do a world tour of it, doesn’t always work out. How is it staying in– who else is going to sign it? Who else? Like, nobody else has the ceiling space for. At least nobody else from–
SAM Chang: Neither does Colorado.
OMAR: Yeah, that’s also fair. It’s also– I don’t even have [INAUDIBLE].
SAM Chang: Like, look, if it was before the Nichushkin and Josh Manson contracts, that would have been one thing, but they had a lot of money tied to those two players.
OMAR: Ooh, ouch, [INAUDIBLE].
JULIAN MCKENZIE: They really signed choo-choo-train to love eight years.
SAM Chang: I was literally like, what– like–
OMAR: Oh, actually…
SAM Chang: I don’t question them, but it’s the first contracts they’ve signed in a long time that gives me some anxiety.
AVRY LEWIS-MCDOUGALL: Yeah, the [INAUDIBLE] have $0.44 to their name.
JULIAN MCKENZIE: Yeah, who are they going to move with– if they– if, if they keep Kadri, like, who are they going to move to make this work?
OMAR: And I take that away. No matter.
JULIAN MCKENZIE: We don’t have to deliberate on that.
OMAR: No, I’m taking that back man, because man– Nathan MacKinnon, another year. Man, yeah, I take that back, too bad.
JULIAN MCKENZIE: That he is a bad man who must…
SAM Chang: I don’t think they’re going to quit Eric Johnson.
OMAR: It’s just. Oh yeah. Oh, oh, yeah. Oh, six?
SAM Chang: 6 windmill right there.
OMAR: Alright, yeah. He is fine. No matter.
JULIAN MCKENZIE: OKAY. Alright, I’m sure they’ll find a way out.
