Kassian will not be playing 48 games. I see him getting 25-30 games. With 4 goals and 6 assists. This kid is struggling on the top line in Chicago for the wolves.

Now is that Kassian, Or the top line for the Wolves, that is struggling?

Hmmm...

Depends how they use him.

I don't think he's quite ready for prime time but you never know with the Sedins, they seem to bring out the best in alot of guys. I would give him a real good look with them for the first half of training camp and see if he can hang with them. Not because I think he will be better than burrows, he won't. It would be ideal to be able move burrows down to the second line for balance IMO. Although he's no superstar, burr seems to have that ability to make others around him better. With kesler off the second line, that line is going to be seriously hurting. I think if Schroeder gets that 2nd line job, it would do wonders for his development to play with a guy like burr for a few weeks.

We're not going to have alot of room for error this year so even if Kass starts with the twins, I find it unlikely he will stick unless he's really putting the points up. It would be a huge bonus if he does though and we could use burrows in the second.

All depends on who he plays with as previously stated. I would prefer to see him start the season getting PP time with the sedins and pulling Samuelson duty replacing burr after a penalty kill while slotting in on the turd Banging bodies with Max lap . He is one of the few players who has been playing all season and should hopefully be up to speed I say give him an early chance to earn a top six spot. Spot duty with the sedins can only improve his playmaking. If he does well when Kes comes back he could be just the guy to dish the cookie on the second.

Also imo If he isn't ready for top 9 duty send him back to the wolves for more ice time. Nobody develops on the 4th.

I think he would do very well to get 20pts if he stays in the top 9 but its not the points I will be most concerned with I will be watching his +\- and hit tallies and O zone penalties. If he can be a + player, pace maxlap in hits, and not take o zone penalties he will have shown me that he is improving even if his point total is only 10 to 15 playing on the turd.

Most of CDC will say "90 points or he's useless and should riding pine"
Anyone who knows something about hockey will say "20-25pts"

Myself, I'm going to say 20pts is a successful half season for Zack.
I'm not looking for success from Zack this year, I'm more excited to see him grow and improve over the next couple of years.

I'm going with 10/15, we are only talking about 48 games (if he plays all) a point every 4 games will be doing well for him.

I'm more concerned with his work effort then how he is for points. I'd be happy if we just noticed that he was on the ice for all his shifts.

I just want to see him throw some hits, and be a force infront of the net. If he could do that and pot around 15 points, I would be happy.

10-15 sounds about right. If he ends up with any more than 20, I'll be surprised.

This, I remember the first few games after the trade Zack was looking great, hitting everyone and looking good on the ice. He did trail off though and I stopped noticing him as much, hopefully he can play consistently and stay on the roster for the whole season. I'm also more interested in how many points Schroeder will be getting if he's put in that second line center spot.

This all depends on how many minutes he gets. If he gets less than 15 minutes a game, it will be hard.

He will also need to have at least some PP time.

I have always said, if you give most players enough shifts, they will produce (some don't regardless, cough cough Gomez)

I would put him up against smaller opposing forwards and have him use his physical play.

I would say between 16-19, pace for 32 over 82 games would be realistic.

However, you never know. This is going to be a weird season and he's already played 28 games this year compared with many who have played less or none at all, so maybe he'll be in better game shape.

Anything over 16 and I'll be stoked.

0, he'll be sent back down to Chicago before the season opens.

By the way learn how to spell SHIRIKOV who is this shirakov


Amazingly on his first shift Kassian would have had a breakaway if Kesler knew how to pass. And he still got switched with Weiss. And note it is "Weiss" not "Wise".

5 goals 10 assists +3 career is my expectation. and 3 points per playoff series. I'm more worried about his plus minus though. He needs to be responsible and if he moves into the plus side of things career nhl wise that's a great improvement over last season.

I'm pleasantly surprised by people not having high expectations and possibly a little surprised to see people being overly pessimistic.

But, as far as predictions, since we don't know if he'll play with the Sedins or any line below that, or how many games he'll play, or if he'll go back to the Wolves (at any point), it's pretty much a crapshoot to predict anything.How about we just let him play and see what happens since we can't even predict what role he'll have or if he'll even stick with the team.

While what you said is nothing but the truth, half the fun of watching hockey is trying to guess how many points a player might score on a season.

I'm doubtful he breaks 15 to be honest. But I hope he proves me wrong. If he plays with the Sedins, obviously he'll get more, but you guys are forgetting that AV isn't exactly the most patient person with young players. If Kassian goes a couple of games without producing (as he most likely will), he'll slap Burrows back on the top line in an instant and Kassian will be relegated to scrub minutes.
