“@anguscertified: #canucks fans - meet the new and improved Zack Kassian. Down almost 20 pounds from last season: http://t.co/AHnrRKm0 #training”

Just saw this on twitter and was Retweeted by Pass it to bulis. This is great if your a Canuck fan or even just a Kassian fan. Hopefully he'll be able to be quicker in his skating like he was for Canada in the world juniors

Great news, hopefully he puts some muscle back on as the season progresses so he is a force come playoffs

That's pretty impressive, lunge jumps are so painful. Looks like he's going to be pretty explosive, and better prepared to play 20mins a game.

Do we want a powerforward losing weight?

I thought his skating was great for a big guy...

Wasn't Zack brought in because he was big and heavy?

My buddy who is best friends with Prab Rai told me about this Saturday night. It was actually an ex coworkers boyfriend who I now keep in contact with, but he's a childhood friend of Prab Rai and his brother, he said Kassian's been skating in Langley with Prab Rai, Duncan Keith, Brent Seabrooke, Jason Garrison and a couple other prospects, and yes, has lost 20 pounds. I have high hopes for Kass, and I think this will bring a new element to his game, speed.

muscle weighs more than fat ladies and germs. so if he lost 20 pounds of fat and kept all his muscle- kudos. and lets hope he adds some more lean bulk while hes at it.

That's what I thought. :lol:

So we finally acquire the powerforward we need, and then we tell him to lose weight cause he's too big?

Didn't we try that with Bernier and he got alot worse?

Not every player has to fit into the skilled fast mold of our other players. Seems to me Penner does alright for himself at 240. So did Bertuzzi.

He'll tag on some muscle soon, bump him up 5-10 pounds: 6'3", 215 pounds, speed will be much better now...seems like its gonna help him.

Nothing quite as intimidating as, "I've lost 20 pounds! Grrrrr!"

First the shave, now this. Soon he'll have his gap permanently filled too. (If that's not already done.)

We're taking this supposed 'untamed beast' of a player and turning him into another generic clone. I remain unimpressed.
