07:20 AM ET 09.06 | Well, it's come to this, a place that many could have seen coming for weeks but probably hoped would not arrive. The Toronto Maple Leafs are set to open training camp next week, but Nazem Kadri may not be joining his teammates if he doesn't have a new contract in tow. Kadri, a restricted free agent, told reporters on Wednesday he was prepared to sit out camp if he and the club can't come to terms on a new deal by then. "If that's what it takes," the 22-year-old said. "I don't want to [hold out]. I want to be here come training camp." On Tuesday, Leafs vice president of hockey operations Dave Poulin said he felt the team had presented what was "a very fair offer," but Kadri said he desired the same thing. "I just want something that's fair, that's all," the centre said Wednesday.

Always a good thing when a young man with a history of not being in the best physical shape blows off training camp.

Are you sure he's not pulling an Emmitt Smith?

Kadri's just waiting for the team to have a slow start to the season and for the panic to set in.

He'll then swoop in, sign a contract and lead his team to the promised land and postseason glory erasing the taunt of 1967 forever.

The only thing the Leafs did on D was swap Fraser for Ranger, and keep the rest of the goon squad.

A stern talking-to would definitely be in order, IF there was one.

Somehow you'll end up sleeping with the humus isn't much of a threat.

He's just working on endearing himself to the Leafs organization and their fans.
