Nazem Kadri signed a one-year “show me” extension with the Toronto Maple Leafs on Sunday.
The deal is worth $4.1 million and gives Kadri a golden opportunity to prove his worth as an elite centre — and a chance to cash in once the year’s up.
Don Cherry took to Twitter Monday to voice his opinion on the polarizing player and his signing in a series of 14 tweets.
The overall sentiment?
“Now he (has) a new beginning and a new coach that won’t put up with any BS,” tweeted Cherry. “Nazem must have a good year or he is toast.”
This isn’t the first time Cherry has commented on Kadri’s time with the Leafs.
In March, Cherry came to the defence of the 24-year-old forward after a three-game suspension, saying, “The kid is not going to be here in two years.”
