You don't know that. And its there*.
I think if Kassian is ready for top six minutes, put him with Kesler and Booth. I remember MG saying that Zack could be our Dustin Brown/Dustin Byfuglien type of player if he's given the opportunity.
Somewhere, somehow I'd like to know the connection between Brown and Byfuglien?
I hope Kass follows the Brown route. He does absolutely anything and everything to win, at maximum effort every night! Buff is a supremely gifted physical specimen, but a slug nonetheless on many nights...
It's kind of an unfortunate situation because Kassian would be far better off developing on the 3rd and 2nd lines, the problem is... he isn't really better than any of our 3rd or 2nd liners right now. Perhaps if someone slumps or gets injured he can play on those lines, but I see him sitting on the 4th this season.
Kassian is not necessarily better, but 20 lbs bigger and perhaps faster than all those he will compete to steal time from. He has physical gifts to dominate a game and it is worth looking to see if all his extra training has positioned him to take advantage of that?
