Lay Off Kassian

80 posts in this topic

Thinking Hodgson would be more useful than Kassian THIS year is not dumping on Kassian.

GMMG said Kassian would be useful this playoff run and clearly that's not the case.

Its not kassians fault it is AV's. He is not playing him properly. Kassian is just young and talented waiting for a chance.

No, he looks totally out of place. He is a pro athelete he gets no free pass. He is only in the lineup to justify this awful trade Gillis made. AV knows he has to dress him, his lack of ice-time is the result of him being unable to keep up with the pace of the game at a pro level. There is a reason why he was a healthy scratch with Buffalo, he cant cut it yet. Such a awful trade, yet there are still people defending it. Canucks are down 0-3, cant score, cant even hit, so whats the purpose of playing him? Man atleast Bernier or Pyatt actually won a fight in the big leagues, whats this clown done? Not even AHL ready.

He keeps on doing BLATANT giveaways and is contributing NOTHING positive.

This guy is a major flop, he is a liability on the ice.

ALAIN VIGNEAULT AND HIS MERRY MEN ARE THE PROBLEM. 3-4 minutes of Ice time to fourth liners is not "rolling four lines"

Kassian has long way to go and I'm certain that the organization will help him become a great player in the future with his skills. Kassian's usefulness is limited as of now but he will be a great asset when playing against teams like BOS, PHI.

If AV would let Kassian play his game then I don't think this would be an issue, look what happened when given proper ice time and was hitting everything that moved in the Buffalo game. He needs to be let off whatever leash AV has him on.

LoL at the Kassian fanboys. The guy is less useful than a pylon. AV is not using him properly? Give me a break. He's not using him because he's bloody useless. Hodgson brings so much more to the table it's not even close. I can't believe MG thought this trade was a good idea.

You all keep saying he can "skate" and "hit" and "fight"... are you watching the same Kassian I am? I have seen nothing of the sort. With the limited ice-time he does get you'd think he'd try and make a big hit or two. But nope. NOTHING.

I think it's important for people to remember that Kassian was brought in as a LONG TERM INVESTMENT. I certainly didn't expect him to light it up in the playoffs. He's still so new and has so much growing to do. So unfair that people are beating him up.

The team as a whole is struggling and our top players aren't performing to their potential. We can't really point fingers here.

Everyone should remember that acquiring Kassian was done for the long-term, and Hodgson had no place here in the future with the Centres we already have. Let's face it, MG was handcuffed by Hodgson's camp (its clear there was something going on there with regards to a trade request or at least something along those lines) and had to make a deal.

The sequence of deals gave us a more complete roster and the scoring that we're missing is that from the top-6, not from the bottom-6. The defensive play from the forwards has actually been good, better than with Hodgson, most goals in this series have really come from misplays by the defence.

The deal was made with more faith in our top-6, but they have not been good enough (obviously missing Daniel is a big part of it). The top-6 was able to take us to the SCF last year so I think it was fair to have faith in them to do the scoring this year, and that an improved defensive bottom-6 (compared to last year) would help get us over the hump.

Also, tough, physical players like Kassian are bound to take time to adapt to the NHL (and he is also a year younger than Hodgson). Remember when a lot of us ruled Hodgson as a bust last year?
