Power Forwards do not need to be surrounded by talent to produce. Hence the numbers of guys like Nash, Iginla and to a lesser extent Doan.

Sucks to see Kassian providing about half the PPG that Hodgson had going on...

Quick google search shows he does not wear a letter for the Rochester Americans.

The Wolves are a VERY low scoring team. Kassian has 14 points in 22 games, tied second on the team.

Ebbett has the same number of points and was always a ppg player on other teams. Before last season Andrew Gordon averaged a ppg over his previous two seasons. This year he has 10 points in 21 games. Darren Haydar has 2 goals in 18 games. Heck he had a 122 point season one year. He also put up 18 goals and 35 points during a playoff run.

Kassian would probably be at around the 18-20 point mark if he was still on Rochester.

i'm not that concerned with the number of points he's putting up. i'm more concerned that he still remains an inconsistent player. we've all seen flashes of brilliance even at the NHL level. the biggest problem with him (since buffalo and rochester) was that he just would not show up or be invisible for stretches of the game. he needs to learn to play more consistent at the ahl level.

so just wondering what everyone else is thinking about this. zack was suppose to go down to the ahl and just tear it apart. as of right now hes been okay but not great. now while he has shown flashes of dominance at times (abbotsford games), 12 points in 20 games in the AHL isnt what canucks fans were hoping for, so lets just hope he is off to a slow start. what do you guys think?

You are wrong on so many levels. Power forwards typically need good players with them as their job is to open space for everyone else.

Then give me examples of power forwards who only produced good numbers when having an elite talent alongside them. You cant just make a claim with absolutely nothing to back it up.

Hodgson - 30 points in 52 games in Manitoba 2010/11 = .57 points/game

Kassian - 14 points in 22 games in Chicago 2011/12 = .64 points/game

Not concerned.

Likewise where Schroeder is concerned.

21 goals and 44 points in 76 games last year = .58 points/game

14 points this year...

Not concerned.

The coaching/mgmt. staff of the Canucks and Wolves are concerned about Kassian and Schroeder.

Of course,they have to manage and coach assets into responsible and effective NHL players. CDC bloggers have no skin in the game.

“With those two players, it was about consistency of their play,” Arniel said. “Everyone is accountable. Everyone has to fall into line the same way. It was just wasn’t one game. They had a few up and down games, and we needed to get that message sent to them that they do have to be good every night.

“They handled it well. But I hope they were pissed off.”

It was Arniel’s call, though he did let the Canucks in on his decision before Saturday. In an interview Tuesday, GM Mike Gillis said he supported it and Arniel’s team did respond with a 3-1 win over Peoria.

“They know why I did it,” Arniel said of the Canucks.

“I think everyone recognized no one is untouchable and everyone falls under the same rules. That’s what you hope.”

If you want to go on stats alone........ Hodgson would be on pace for 2 goals after 20 games, at least Kassian has 6 :lol:

Hodgson was a PPG AHL player until his arm was slashed and broken10 pts in 10 games played.

He was the center man on the league's top scoring line and ranked seventh amongst all AHL scorers.

Kassian:

1 assist in game 2

1 goal in game 3

1 goal in game 4

1 goal in game 5

0 points in game 6

1 goal in game 7

0 points in game

2 assists in game 9

0 points in game 10

7 pts;4g,3a in the first ten games.Looking really good for Kas.

0 points in game 11

0 points in game 12 (DNP)

0 points in game 13

0 points in game 14

1 assist in game 15

1 assist in game 16

Ah,no De Niro.

Stats are stats.

When Kas is on it he plays well.

Still,he takes his team down shorthanded with penalties on a maximum level basis.

If Kas was that good he would be leading the AHL as Hodgson did.

Kas has great promise but is inconsistent.He is immature and has issues.One set of issues for another set.Great move,huh?

Hodgson was effectively consistent on the Nucks and with Rochester.
