I hope he grows out his hair and beard again. it looks so badass


I'm scared of him anyways. Having some time since the playoffs to relax and think, I am pretty happy that Kassian didn't try too hard to be the size we need. He wasn't trying to pick fights or to protect the Sedins or anything. Honestly, that probably would have been a baaaad idea. He seems to understand the fact that he has a lot to learn before he can be an impact player, and that he can get a lot stronger. All in all, the whole point of this trade is that we now have someone who has the size the Canucks feel they need to win, and he has a brain and offensive skill to boot. Now we just have to wait and see if he's got an NHL work ethic to carry him through the years.

Anyone know where he'll be training this summer? I really question this kids work ethic for some reason . I think him and cody are complete opposites in thAt regard.

He's a big, tough, mean guy and Cody is coho, of course they're opposites. But as far as work ethic, I wouldn't question Kassian because he has consistently been getting bigger every summer and getting faster at the same time, that takes hard work.

If he's going to be on the 4th line again, I'd rather he just develop with 1st line minutes in the A.

AV had an interview with Cam Charron and he said Kassian as a legitimite chance of becoming a top-6 forward. AV doesnt say he will be one next year, just say he has a chance and not sure which line he will play on next year.

CC: Where do you see Kassian in the lineup next season?

AV: I think he's got a legitimate chance of becoming a top-six forward. So where exactly is he going to fit in on which line I'm not quite sure but I've been hearing that he's working real hard and that's why we go to training camp.

Kassian with the nice assist on the insurance goal tonight. He just muscled the defender with one arm and shoveled the puck out to Sweat with the other.

Underrated play right there.

love his chirp afterwords.

it was a questionable hit, to be honest, as i'm fairly certain both feet left the ice shortly before contact, but frack if i care. EDIT: (went frame by frame on the replay, his feet never left the ice until contact was first made, clean hit all the way) it wasn't a headshot, the kid wasn't injured, a hawks prospect will fear taking it behind the net now, and kass dropped the kid trying to step it up for his teammate (which i actually respect the hogs player for doing, as dumb as it made him look)

plus it sends a message, and he follows it up with an amazing (and strong) one handed pass for the nail in the coffin. great game by kass. It seems the term "power forward" was accurate after all. he needs to kep this up (though i'd like to see him keep both feet on the ice next time, just to be safe)

the hawks should already know to fear us behind the net (see Torres hit on seabrook )

Both were on the 2nd line.

They are winning games though, so I doubt the coach will change things up.

It's arguable.

As Staton looks to lose his edge in an effort to stop and avoid the hit, which results in Kassian going 'on top' of him.

But it's very clear... that Kassian aimed for the shoulder, and not the head.

very true, and upon further review, his feet didn't leave the ice until he first made contact. i retract my previous statement, clean hit all the way, and a monster one at that.

It's really nice to see him playing with some aggression and that assist later in the game was a beauty too. Which is what I like to see, a lot of people don't realize that Kassian has always been more of a pass-first type (which is rare for a power-forward).

Signs of good things to come.
