Nazem Kadri has put Maple Leafs in the running

Toronto, finally showing some pop with coach Randy Carlyle working with a clean slate from the start of the season, will be on Causeway Street Thursday night.

Of Lebanese descent, Kadri pronounces his first name NAH-zem. But a few PA announcers around the league have referred to him as nah-ZEEM, leading teammates to refer to him as “Nah-ZEEM the Dream.’’
