Players don’t come with better hands than those of Nazem Kadri. Talent. That’s his game. The kind of free flowing hockey mind that can crack any system, work against any scheme and open up space with a single deke or pass.
Unfortunately, there have been too many cases where talent just didn’t come to fruition. Talent has the ability to seduce, to make one take it for granted. If you possess enough skill, ability in something, anything, you do it’s just a matter of time when certain thoughts come creeping in. You inevitably start noticing and recognizing the difference between you and other players and it shows. Not only do you gain more confidence but as a side effect you truly start to believe you could do this with less effort.
