Kassian is doing really well but he was slotted on to the line due to multiple injuries,not because he 'earned it'.
That is ridiculous to the point of star bursting trolling extraordinaire.
Could be you are devoid of hockey common sense because it is ridicuous to even suggest he 'earned it'.
Certainly not with his play on this team last season.
He could not even be trusted to be slotted in on the last game of the playoffs - on the fourth line.
Troll la la la la
I don't think you quite understand the concept of "trolling". Praising a player is not trolling. Being rediculously critical (or simply making up pure bs) to irritate, insult, or incite, is trolling.
Players earn their spot be seizing their opportunities. Last year Kassian failed to seize his opportunities and ended up in the press box in the playoffs. That was last year. In the off-season he worked out hard and came back in much better shape. Opportunity came again and this time he seized opportunity by the nuts and hasn't stopped crushing them. Thus earning his spot and ice time this year. Whether or not he can hold on to that spot when Kesler and Booth return is yet to be seen. That sir is "hockey common sense".
