is that a warning sign? i though we are supposed to be discussing his warning signs of not being a good AHL player and thus not a good NHL player because basic stats don't lie?


Obviously. If we are beating teams at even strength then pretty soon the PP will be clicking. And if the PP starts clicking and Kassian is only playing 2nd PP, then he's not helping us win. Because AHL.

Multiple Warning Signs Surrounding Zack Kassian's Playmaking
  • 1

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.

They had a lot of praise for him between periods, and rightly so. He has had an awesome start to the season.

The warning signs are starting to appear for Hodgson.

#1 line center playing with the league's top scorer and his team gets shutout tonight.

INTERESTING

Hodgson is now a 7.5C, with his detractors being injury history and "could be problematic to sign"

Kassian is now 7B, projected at worst as a premium 3rd line scorer.

**could have sworn it said 8.0B for Kass just now, but its not :(

You've made several statements in this thread that demonstrate trolling.

It needs to stop.


Thank you. I hope the threads can be free or what causes the Canuck mass to be ventilated and disconcerted in cheering and thinking about the Canucks players.

It's worse then that. There are those that believe Cody was going to turn into Joe Sakic. If Kassian doesn't exceed that, then he will be considered a bust by those with unrealistic expectations.

He needs a good center to feed him. Right now there is no depth, and lapierre and Kesler will not be his answer. He shows some signs much like bertuzzi when he came to vancity but other times just a slow 4th line plug

Who cares what some made up rating system says anyways..

Hodgeson is gonna be a star.
Kassian may turn into that lucrative power forward, needs top minutes, I found him to be perfect line mate for the sedins, and according to his great start I think he responded well to it when he was given the chance.


But I cant see him producing much being a power forward for a couple third liners, it doesnt work that way..

I am glad this one is brought up. It was pathetic. Right up there with the 'Burrows do we need him'? The cynical idiots need to live in infamy .

Here is a thought. How about waiting until the prospects develop before we crown them 'Captain Cody' or BUST Kassian. :rolleyes:

Now that Kassian's essentially played the same amount of games in the AHL this season as he did last, I thought I'd have a look at the numbers to see how exactly he's "developing" (generous term).

WARNING: this ain't pretty

2011-12: 30 GP, 15 G, 26 P, +4, 94 SOG, 31 PIM

2012-13: 28 GP, 6 G, 18 P, -1, 72 SOG, 59 PIM

By my calculations, this amounts to the following data comparatives:

  • 60% year-over-year reduction in goals
  • 31% year-over-year reduction in points
  • 18% year-over-year reduction in SOG/game
  • 90% year-over-year increase in PIMs.
And, to be honest, the two things that are of the most concern to me are the decline in SOG and the increase in PIM. There's really no explanation for getting less SOG as a 22 year-old AHL sophomore than as a 21 year-old AHL rookie. And this SOG figure is even inflated, as Kass did have 7 SOG last game, bringing up his average significantly.

And while it's nice that he does seem willing to throw the body, at times, and drop the gloves, at times, I really hope that we didn't trade Cody Hodgson for a bottom-six goon that will be lucky to get 5 - 10 goals per year in limited minutes. I'm beginning to wonder if Kassian has a bit of "Kyle Beach" in him; capable of so much, too stupid to realize it and in the penalty box way, way too much.

Let's not forget that Kassian was hand held by the Sedin's in the off-season to try and get his training habits in shape (not a good sign), and even went on to be a healthy scratch in 1 (or more, I'm not sure) game, also (clearly) not a good sign.

Who else is concerned?

How is it being so miserable all the time?

In my eyes drouin is overrated he can score in the qmjhl but did nothing in last two gold medal games that canada lost. Fox will be better pro than him talk to me in five yrs

Gaudreau has one NHL goal whereas all your "prized" prospects have none.

King of BS...

Kas can pass, hit, fight, intimidate, his skating is improving, and his leadership skills in terms of sticking up for his teammates are on the rise. And he's getting better all the time. He is the future of the Canucks and is learning consistency from some of the most consistent players around.

This will be Kas and Kes team one day.
