I will always be a Luongo fan, no mater what jersey he is wearing... even if its Boston.

Not because Kassian is on there line that they won't take a run at him. Kassian doesn't scare anyone in this league (yet, wishful thinking).

Now, if that 6'4 guy was Lucic or Chara on defense, that might scared people off. But Kassian hasn't earned that respect yet.

Kassian has done nothing to prove himself worthy of first line minutes so far. If you want to see someone to make room for the twins, look no further than the man who is on their line right now: David Booth. Suprisingly, he's been arguably our most physical player this series.

10 bucks says next year, AV will give Kassian the Hodgson treatment, limit his icetime and demote him when he is playing well.

Good thread!, I like the idea, really what at this point does AV have to lose, Parking Kas in front of Quick is a great idea. I like Kas as oppsed to Burrows just because Kas is much bigger and I think if Kas loses it he could create some real havoc at the net, which we really, really, really, need right now.
I like it!!!!!

If Daniel does play, he's mentioned feeling out of shape. If that's the case, he may see reduced minutes. Kassian is a player who could stand to raise his fitness levels to be able to compete more, and could work well in the reduced minutes Danny and Hank will have together while they work their magic. Then you can have Hank get some extra shifts with Kes and Booth, and use Burrows the rest of the time.

It'd end up with some line shuffling and double shifting, but it could really help change up our pace and look at times as well.

If this team lets go of Sang he will burn this team next year.

I really like the way kass protects the puck in the corners and then drives to the front of the net. That and protection/toughness was the whole reason that we traded hodgson. This kid was really lighting it up until AV put him on a leash and started controlling him like a robot. This is the playoffs and Kass is what this team needs. But I wouldn't put him with the sedins. He should play with kes and booth because the actually had chemistry until AV decided to mess with that by putting Raymond in.
