Kassian too confident at the end of his fight?

Seth Jones is going top 2 and if the Oilers finish last, then they will have the chance at either picking first or second (with higher chances of picking first overall). I really don't know how to explain it more clearly to you. Should I draw a picture for you?


Sure, I guess some of the simple-minded folks like you can't express your thoughts in words. A picture would be fine, young one.

"Takedowns" in a hockey fight is a complete joke. It's not MMA, what the hell does a takedown accomplish?


He had too when Kassian fed him two awesome lefts!!! :emot-parrot:

I think Ben Eager likes you too. Maybe you could give him a back rub and sooth his aching head.

i suppose i might have some baby oil somewhere

Kassian is supposed to be a top two line forward to help the team, with his speed, soft hands and physical play. It was jaunt stupid for Kassian to take himself out of the game by fighting with a 4th liner Eager. Kassian should not wait until he fractures his hand in a fight before he regrets.


This case is an exception. I agree with you for the most part - he's a very talented guy that we don't want playing an enforcer role, particularly when he gives up 25lbs - but Eager has a history of taking runs at the Sedins - and he had a message to get accross.

:picard: Kassian was brought in for exactly what he did tonight. MG was trying to address the lack of grit/toughness factor in the top 6.

Are you kidding me? Eager is one tough motherf*cker, not many young kids would fight a guy like that. He's trying to fire up his team and the fans who were pathetic tonight. This team desperately needs more guys like this, maybe it will rub off on bieksa who used to be an animal but now thinks he's paul coffey.

Really?! You call that arrogance?! Really?!

Posted Image

The kid was simply stating a fact and backed it up. It's not arrogant if you back it up: it's called having supreme confidence and being a champion.

My sig below reads "Athletes today are scared to make Muhammad Ali statements". Seth made a statement and backed it up. Only the elite are capable of that, and Seth is one at least at the junior level right now.

As for Kassian, I do not think his actions were arrogant at all. It's his home crowd and he's trying to get the fans back into the game after the Oilers tied it up.


Seth's ok, but I think he gets more hype than other players his age because he's Popeye Jones' kid.

I thought Trouba was more dynamic in that tournament, but whatever.

It's ironic that someone on here is making a big deal out of the US world junior gold, because no one in Canada cares anymore due to the NHL coming back, and barely anyone cared in the US to begin with, let alone now :bigblush:

I prefer the 2010-2011 team that was more about skills. It got us to SCF game 7.

MG got so paranoid that he traded for a bunch of so-called grit and toughness. Guess what. We can't even beat the Oilers.

You know, the Oilers are starting to look pretty good on paper....they aren't like a Columbus or Calgary when it comes to talent now.

I don't understand how people still expect the Oilers to lose every game, they have young stars at almost every position.

So after his fight, anyone else notice his little victory celebration? I love Kassian and really thought he played well today, but anybody else think that antics like that are unnecessary?

Just wait until one of our Canucks is on the losing end and someone celebrates. I guarantee all of your jimmies will be rustled.



The celebration was just to get the fans back in it and also he was probably pretty pumped he did a pretty good job versus a NHL heavyweight.

The key difference is that Sopel can fill in for Seabrook and Campbell just fine. Bieksa, he is garbage so in that sense he is like the worst defenseman in the league.


When Cody (Hodgson) gets older, he might be better than Datsyuk.


Let's not push this guy (Kassian). He's still immature, and if he fails on the 2nd line it's because he isn't ready. Some guys really need years to develop, it's how well and how fast players adapt to the game. In my opinion, I'd rather have Horvat getting 2nd line minutes. He will start off on the 3rd line next season but I see him making the transition, being a great compliment to whoever plays his wings.

At this point, I don't see Kassian fitting in to any role other than a 3rd. If players like Kassian start getting 2nd line minutes then we just stay inconsistent as a team.


The idiocy on CDC....

Any team that played against the Canucks tonight would "start to look pretty good."

I don't follow the Oilers but aside from acquiring of Eager, I don't see much has changed to the team that was ranked the second worst in the NHL's 2011-2012 season.

Yakupov and Shultz may not have shown a ton in their debut tonight but I think they qualify as a couple of pretty big changes to the 2011-12 Oilers.....

This guy plays on the edge, it's something you either hate him or love him for it. In my opinion i think the canucks need more of that in their game, someone to do things that can change the momentum of a game. Really liked his performance tonight.

The problem is, this is one sided. By that I mean if the shoe was on the other foot, people would be raging mad.

Many people may say that it's no big deal or to just get the fans going, but if an opposing player did it in Rogers Arena, BAM, there would be outrage. This instance has happened before, and it was immediately downplayed because it was a lack of respect.

If you want to get the fans pumped at home, go have a good fight, but have respect when it is over. It was bad showmanship, but I understand why he did it.

I'm sure an instance will happen again during this year and I am interested to see the reaction. If there is a blow out for the visiting team and they pummel someone in a fight and "raise the roof" afterwards, would that not be interpreted as taunting and have 25 threads made talking about how that player is garbage? Objectively Always.

Overall Kassian played a high energy game and was impressive. Leave the after fight celebrations to the fans, focus on trying to chip in when you play with such skilled guys as the twins.

Kassian was awesome tonight, he was throwing out hits, scoring, all he needed was an assist for the good ol Gordie Howe Hat trick. It is funny how some of our fans can be so negative about small stuff like this. Keep up the good work Zack.

I don't see a problem with that, even if an opposing player did that at Rogers Arena. It's part of the game and it's part of sports, like Alex Ovechkin's showboating WHY do people have such a big problem with it?! If people are that sensitive about it then they shouldn't be watching pro sports.

Yes, you seem to lack the competence to realize that I was merely suggesting that cocky gestures aren't exactly the best things to have from a team that's already taken a lot of flak for 'diving'


Screw what others think! I'm glad Kassian did what he did, and anyone who doesn't like it can suck it. I'm not interested in being liked by the losers in the rest of the league. I hope he beats down Duncan Keith next and celebrates more.

Generally speaking, I don't enjoy watching that kind of stuff after a fight. But in this case, I was cheering my butt of when Kass did it. It was very refreshing seeing 'I'll hit you from behind' Eager bleeding from the face and a Canucks player outwardly showing emotion. I really want to see more youth injected into the Canucks lineup, they bring a different dynamic to the game and dressing room.
