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.


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?

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.


You are a hopeless Hodgson lover... :sadno:

Kesler was lucky to score 20 this year since the injury to Morrison allowed him to do so.

I doubt Kesler would ever break 15 goals in his career again.

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.

Kassian.... Taylor Pyatt 3.0

Lies. He's more of a Steve Bernier. Hopefully his talent level goes up so he can become like a Taylor Pyatt.

Cody appears to be finding his place in Buffalo and the fans are very happy with the trade. I am not expecting Zack to have as many points as Coho at the end of the season, as the Nucks require his versatile skillset in other areas. I think most Nuck fans are happy with the trade as well. Win/Win. Canuck fans need to ease up on all the Hodgson slagging. Both these guys are young players in the very early stages of their careers. Just let it go. Be happy with what you've got.

and i would have to agree with him on that..
Kassian has looked unreal these first few games and if he had put every chance he has had in the net he would be a league leader in points.
I hope he can keep it up or even at half the pace he is scoring at , if so then we have a (star ) future star on our team.

Not to mention the fact that Cody and Zack are completely different players with completely different skill sets and playing styles.

I like them both and wish we could have ended up with the both of them, but that's not how hockey works.

He didn't look good. No hits, no fights, got one shot I think that had no chance of going in. Terrible.

So if he's not on the stats sheet he's bad?

Only on the ice for two goals, making the goalies life hard by being infront of the net. Also broke up a couple passes so Min could not get into their zone. Had a very solid defensive game plus created a few scoring chances. Kas had a very solid game for those who know what to look for.

He parks himself in front of the net....now, maybe you don't notice him there, but I'm pretty sure the goaltenders do.

Oh wow you people are actually delusional. I don't think this is the place for me. He was the worst forward tonight by a large margin. Anyone who doesn't have their head up their ass would tell you that. Oh man, you guys gave me a good laugh.

He had a pretty solid game. I'd like to see him drive the net a little harder - and I think the team needs to adjust their cycle game a bit to work with him on that. Kas is pretty unmovable, so he might as well be in front of the net to receive a pass rather than behind.
