Yesterday Wilson gave an on-ice talk to Nazem Kadri about how his spot is not guaranteed and that he has to work for his spot. After watching Kadri play two games this pre-season, it's become apparent that he isn't yet ready for the NHL. In last night's game he started on the defacto first line alongside Versteeg and Armstrong, but by the end of the 2nd period he found himself replaced with Tim Brent and was instead centering Mueller and Boyce. He's not ready and Wilson knows that.

So I pose the question, should Wilson include Kadri in his next round of cuts? Can you think of a better way bringing him down to Earth? Let me know in the comments.
