Multiple Warning Signs Surrounding Zack Kassian

Rate this topic:

1,490 posts in this topic

Since this appears to be the official Kassian thread and ZK and Cody will be forever linked I thought I'd update everyone on Cody's day today. A giant -3. The only checking he does is at the bank.

King of the BS, Kassian is on the first line to give the Sedins the big, tough power forward they have wanted on that line for years. Kassian is young and willing to learn how to play with the Sedins whereas when they tried Bert with them years ago Bert wanted to play his game.

You(King of the BS) keep saying their is an issue with earning the spot. How did he not earn it? Worked out harder than ever during the summer, played quite well at the AHL level and wasn't cut at training camp. He's on the team and his intended role was in the top 9 forwards. Tinkering with the lines is then the coach's responsibility. He choose to put/try Kassian on the first line therefore in his mind(AV & management) he had played well enough to get that shot.

I said top 6, not sedins,

And if the Sedins are not playing well, and they are still producing points, and Zack is leading the forwards in points. So Zack is leading the production for that line, and the Sedins are struggling and your saying Zack has benefitted from the Sedins?? Yet your saying the Sedins are struggling. Your going to have to explain that one.

Oh and Burrows isn't playing on the 2nd line because they need him as a center, he is playing there because Zack is playing better with the Sedins than he was.

Please.If Cody was given six games with the Sedins you would have some point to argue.You do not as it never happened.

The Sedins are not playing like they can because they are playing with Zach.Come on,back to clue school.

Check the Sedin's PPG numbers for the last six or seven years.How can they be the same without 33% of their line intact ,playing with somebody with an entirely different skill set?

They are helping ZACH.Zach is not helping them produce points,is he? That should be another clue.

Burrows never played center in his life.That should have been your last clue,but ,alas,no.

You are a hopeless Hodgson hater.

How can Henrik be the same without Daniel? How can Daniel be the same without Henrik? How can macaroni be the same without cheese?

Do you realize how ridiculous your question sounded?

:lol:

That is so funny omg I laughed so hard, did you see them with Burrows? They were invisable and did nothing, they were put with Zack and have been carrying our team ever since, I personally don't think they are struggling as much as some think but if they could be better, then I would love to see how great this Sedins/Kassian line is when the other 2 thirds are at their best.

Because right now they have a combined 17 Points, that's more than the rest of our forwards combined and Zack is leading them all.

If Cody couldn't crack our top 9, why would we have given him a chance with the Sedins? Zack made our top 6, was given a shot and capitalized, Cody couldn't even complete the 1st step.

Oh and exactly, Burrows has never played center, Higgins has, so if Burrows was playing well enough to stay on the top line they would have had another perfectly capable forward, but he wasn't good enough with the Twins, Zack was better, so they moved him down.

Keeping with your BS and your penchant to denigrate others ,I will pay you the same honor.

Dearest Crapper,every pro works hard in the summer to come in to camp in the best of shape as possible.

Kass was benched at the AHL level and hardly lit it up,although showed much better there than his three minutes he was awarded in the few playoff games he played against LA.

As Kass was not in the best of shape last year but had it finally dawn on him that it might actually be appropriate (as a professional-lol) does not earn one the right to begin on the first line on any team-anywhere.

Kass is on that line due to Kes and Booth hunter injuries.End of story.

ever wonder if maybe the sedins had requested that Kass get a shot on there line.. looking at the big picture and from what has been said about burrows being the canucks most versatile player maybe they thought he could carry his own line while giving this young guy a chance. they have been playing with much more aggressiveness they take the body more seem less afraid of any backlash from doing so while he is one the ice. plus the kid is putting up points.

doesn't seem to far fetched since they had requested hansen get some PP time with them.

either way if he earned it or not it is working .

So when booth and kes come back and the first line stays as is will you and KOES go away on a holiday together so this idiotic banter will end?

man Even if CoHo and Kass finished 1st and 2nd in scoring and only 1 point separated them King and Nit would still say Kass is a bust. and CoHo should never have been traded.

Kass was brought in to bring something very rare in a top 6 forward and we had to give up our top prospect to get him.

He was not brought in to be a ppg player his production so far be it a fluke or not is a huge bonus. if he can keep up at half that pace MG is gonna be the man.

Kass was also not supposed to be a huge impact player right away (no matter what GMMG has said) he was a project player, that has shown huge upside but lacked consistency .

All these warning signs as others have pointed out numerous times had more to do with the AHL team as a whole then him personally. he came from a much better team that he put up much better numbers, then came to a crappy wolves team and his numbers dropped ....common sense says that is the most likely outcome.

yet put him on a team with some serious skill and his production jumps again common sense prevails ....

there is a common theme in all this "Common sense" says good players playing with good players will play better and get more points, good players playing with bad players will get less points. not the most difficult thing to figure out.
