TORONTO, Ontario (CP) -- Nazem Kadri will be at Toronto Maple Leafs training camp after all. Kadri signed a two-year, US$5.8-million deal on the eve of the start of camp, ending contentious contract talks between the restricted free agent centre and the team. "Happy to be with the leafs for the next couple years, looking forward to camp," said Kadri from his verified Twitter account adding the hashtags ".leafnation .bestnation." Kadri enjoyed a stellar 2013, putting up 18 goals and 26 assists in 48 games during his first full NHL season. The 22-year-old seemed to think that production was enough to earn a long-term contract from the Maple Leafs. Instead, Kadri and Toronto agreed to a so-called "bridge" deal that gives him another two years to prove his value. "Congrats to @43--Kadri on the new contract," Maple Leafs enforcer Frazer McLaren tweeted. "Thanks for dinner." Montreal Canadiens defenceman P.K. Subban missed the start of last season while trying to get a longer deal but eventually settled for two years and $5.75 million. Subban won the Norris Trophy as a 24-year-old. Kadris cap hit of $2.9 million will be higher than Subbans $2.875 million. In 99 career games, Kadri has 26 goals and 37 assists. He was the No. 7 pick of the Maple Leafs in the 2009 draft after playing for the London Knights and Kitchener Rangers of the OHL. Signing Kadri leaves one major question for the Maple Leafs: the status of restricted-free-agent defenceman Cody Franson, who remained unsigned as of Tuesday night. The 26-year-old Franson enjoyed a career year in 2013 with four goals and 25 assists. The Maple Leafs have roughly $2 million under the salary cap. Training camp begins Wednesday morning.

In the college game the head coach is like a CEO of a major company who oversees his program and deals with recruiting, scheduling, budgets, academics, fundraising, alumni relations, public and media relations, speaking, mentoring and the spotlight of being a major public figure. On the traditional college campus the basketball coach along with the president and the football and/or baseball or hockey coach are the most recognizable and significant figures when it comes to publicity and fundraising. These four Final Four coaches not only can coach/recruit/lead but they are wonderful ambassadors for their schools. Here is a quick thought on each guy. 1. BO RYAN (Wisconsin): Teams are always really sound on both sides of the Ball. Gets great effort out of his guys. Crisp ball movement on offence with great role definition and ultra stingy defence. They protect the paint beautifully. Sound in all areas. 2 KEVIN OLLIE (UCONN): Thrilled for him. Jim Calhoun really wanted him to have this job and he has delivered. After being unable to play in the tournament last year hes gotten his team to grow and mature from the challenges of last season and improvve to the point of being an elite team.ddddddddddddTakes a special guy to replace a legend and get the program on track and hes done it wonderfully. Team is tenacious in its effort and they really feed off of his energy. They are organized and smartly play to their strength - their guards. 3. JOHN CALIPARI (Kentucky): This guy gets a bad rap. Yes he can really recruit but hes a terrific teacher, motivator, tactician and leader. Ive known John for over 30 years and have seen him rise from being a graduate assistant at Kansas to now. Awesome jobs done at UMass, Memphis and now with the Wildcats. Brought this talented young group along with tough love and a velvet touch as well. Its all about getting your team to peak at the right time and hes been masterful at that throughout his fine career. 4. BILLY DONOVAN (Florida): Attention to detail and innovative. Adapts well to his teams talent and skill level. Two NCAA championships already and this current group of experienced players are close knit due to his vision. His defensive schemes are sound and disruptive to opponents. His offence is guard oriented and they dont beat themselves. Has made the Florida job (at a football school) one of the elite basketball jobs in college hoops due to his sustained success.
