How we forget so quickly. Exactly what Kassian did yet everyone reacted differently....why?

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.

I don't think Edmonton took momentum after the fight. It was pretty closely contested until the shootout. While I don't believe Kass' timing was perfect, he wasn't about to back down from the challange and I absolutely love it!! And it's not like we don't have other players who can play with the Sedins(Burrows??).

It was a wise move by Eager.He took the hot hand out and there is always the possibility of injuries added in,as well.
Great effort but will be advised to pick his spots.

I doubt that.
Kassian is playing first line and has scored a goal.
Veteran fourth liner takes out the first liner with momentum.
Edmoton takes momentum and wins the game.
Love the emotion and effort.Timing sucked.

at the time of the fight, the oilers had all the momentum after 2 unanswered goals and them pressing, kass took some of it back with a well timed fight. just because we lost in a shootout doesn't mean the fight didn't work. had he not fought when he did, we might not have even gotten a point at all.

Haven't read any of the posts yet, but why is Kassian showing confidence a bad thing? Should he have hung his head afterwards and felt ashamed?

Can you imagine drowning AT a KK Rev concert?

  


i'm pretty sure that's how zombies are born.

Non issue I think, He played well contributed both offensively and with his checking. The crowd was quiet it got them going.

Is the OP actually calling his actions "overconfident"??

Dude was trying to get the funeral home of an arena on it's feet and fired up. Rogers Arena on a Sunday night is not exactly a Metallica concert in terms of noise volume. I was falling asleep watching at home til that happened!

People are actually debating whether it was cool to celebrate after a fight or not?

Seriously? :rolleyes:

Listen to the crowd.

The only way that could have ended better is if Kass knocked out some of that fat slobs teeth and then thrown them into the crowd as souvenirs.

Watch me fist pump as I walk out after the game proudly wearing my Ben Eager tooth necklace.

While I don't want to see anyone suffer any kind of permanent damage, consider the message sent, and delivered.

Eager is a big boy and has been prancing around unhindered against us for too long. Not any more. Now he knows we have at least one guy who can and will clean his clock if he decided to act like a chump.

I bet Daniel would sign that for you! I hope he bought Kassian a nice big meal for that! I hope he lays the body on Duncan Keith when they play the Hawks

first off, why would krueger put eagar out bagainst the sedins??? defensive ability, maybe to score against canucks #1's??? kassian possibly prevented an unmitigated injury (there are precedents) gutless move by the oilers and eagar, GUTSY move by kassian and canucks. like many posters i dont want people injured as its their job and income and they have families and a livelihood to support, but it was a fight. they both said yes, and things happen. as for celebrating... sorry thats what you do after a victory, look no further than your u.s.a world junior championship photo seth. i think they showed too much confidence because they were smiling and making number one gestures with their hands. DO YOU KNOW HOW SILLY OF A COMMENT YOU MADE???
