Man, I hope the coaching staff doesn't hold him back. Tired of having a feline team, what's the point of getting tough guys if you have them on a leash all the time.

Thanks for the reminder video. Kass had the drop on him, but Staubitz' veteran exp capitalized when Kass' feet shuffled and moved 90degrees. Kass coulda had that fight, but did well enough to open some eyes. Brad is a knuckle dragger, Kass needs his knuckles to grip and rip'em off his stick :)

But back on Lucic. Whom I consider THE BEAR. Kass being that 4 yr old male willing to challenge.

Another note I dare to say... Lucic has lead of life of leisure. Kass has fought hardships and is driven similarily, but again (dare I say) poised for more longevity.

This is Kassian's best showing in the NHL. Sestito is a big dude and Zach beats him with a solid showing.

Does having Scheuermann's disease sound like a life of leisure to you? http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Scheuermann's_disease

Losing a father is definitely tough, but it's not like Lucic's life was easy pickings either...

I would agree that Kassian may have a longer career as long as he doesn't fight as much as Lucic does. Lucic has fought a lot of guys since coming up as a teenage 4th line banger for a team who's reputed as the Big Bad Bruins. Kassian tends not to fight as much as Lucic and as long as he keeps that up, he will have a longer career.

Part of fighting involves actually hitting the guy. ;)

That's like saying, if Kassian had punched harder he would have knocked him out.

Part of fighting is knowing how to get out of the way also. Kass does a good job of dodging punches, moving his feet, and shifting his body weight in the clutch and grab to gain better positioning for the strike against his opponent.

but what your post count will suffer??? ****** ****

I wait on my father hand and day, not fun, but it sure is uplifting reading your judas statements.

Sounds like lack the sense of what life entails. death is finite. Kass and Buff are driven by something your daddy could've prepard you for.

Wow overreacting much? And I have no idea what you just said because none of it really makes any sense... Respond back in coherent sentences and if I was wrong or being offensive then I'll admit it. No big deal. But there's no need for you to respond back with private messages which are also just as incoherent as your replies on this thread.

Not sure if trying to be an e-thug or genuinely offended ... Though I don't see why you would be ... I was just pointing out that Lucic has had hardships too and it wasn't a life of leisure.

i think he might be going through some things with his dad right now (or recently went through them) so he's a little sensitive on the subject. it's the only explanation I can think of.

Two fights (to go along with the two goals) in two games with Abbotsford, and that huge hit a coupe of games prior, followed by him tackling and punching the guy who tried to retaliate doesn't give you an indication of a mean-streak?


If this isn't an indication of a mean streak.. i don't think there will ever be one.

Just found a pretty good article on Kassian. Just wanted to share with those whom haven't seen it..

http://www.vancouver...-lockout-winner

I happen to agree that he should spend the season with the AHL club. Maybe call him up for a handful of games.

Thoughts?

Yep, I've been saying for awhile that it would be good for Kass to spend an entire season in the AHL. It did wonders for many players last lockout. I gave Spezza as an example.

Bring him up towards the end of the season if there is one.

And man, if he has a Hartnell career, that works for me. He looks like he has much better hands and offensive instincts than Hartnell though.


This.

I think Hartnell is the perfect comparison for what we should be shooting for with Kassian.

Tough hard nosed play, with good production and all the intangibles (and hopefully the good playoff ability like Hartnell too)

Good find! Didn't realize that the last lockout had that big of an impact on several current players (Kes, Burr, Juice); Zack right now sounds like a copy of Kes back then, maybe even more advanced than Ryan was in '04

The 2004-05 lockout was a boon for the Canucks, hyper-driving the development of a second wave of young players who would grow to become future franchise cornerstones, eventually taking the reigns from a slowly decline regime. Kesler emerged from that lockout season in the AHL fully formed.


Sounds promising to me.

Maybe it is just me, but at 0:27 it looks like Sestito says "he got me"

OMG we could've had McKeown!

I think Virtanen was a terrible pick given that he's out for 6 months which will hinder his development. You don't pick someone at #6 under that circumstance, along with the fact that he was given a 3/5 IQ (aka he's dumb). 

God dammit Benning. WHY VIRTANEN? Terrible move.

Excellent observation.

I looked at it over and over many times. I think he said "he got me" or "he caught me". I think he might have said he "caught" me because Kass did catch Sestito with a good shot sending him to the ice.
