It seems to me Kassian is going to become the next player to join the ranks of Edler, Lu/Schneids, Kesler, Sedins, Bieksa and Burrows in the 'fan favorite' players. He's really entertaining to watch and the crowd reaction to him going in for that shootout goal really showed how popular he's becoming. I feel his name is going to be on a lot of shirts/jerseys within the next year.

I know it's only been a couple games into the season, but if Kassian can keep consistent, he's paving a way for a stellar career.


I swear if there are any more Hodgson threads about him...

Definitely, comparable to Big Bert.

Hope he continues his success with the Sedins.

He is exactly what the Canucks have been missing the past few years. That deal is beginning to look like a masterpiece.

Yeah he has the skill set, the potential is there, looks like he is finally coming into his own.

If he can keep this style of play up, i'm sure a lot of fans will like the trade Gillis made.

CODY WHODSON?

NEWTUZZI


Honestly though, I like the three big bodies that have been added. Zack, Aaron, and Dale. They hit everything. It's going to make us a harder team to play against and, honestly, I think Zack and Dale have some offense to give. I've seen Weise push the puck hard on the wing and get some good breaks with his speed. He's more than just a thug.

Aaron too.

FINALLY SOME SIZE THAT GET'S REGULAR ICETIME.

He's a year younger than Hodgson too.. wow

He pumps the crowd, hits, fights, scores and can actually score in the shootout! Yeah he's a fan favourite.

I think he's going to be a fast favourite, he certainly is a lot more high energy and enthusiastic than I was expecting from him. He wants to pump the crowd up and get them shouting, which is a good thing.

Two. Games.

Come back half way through the season.


I do agree with this, but you have to admit, it's two games where our team hasn't been playing at our best. I'd expect a few veterans to step forward and really shine, but so far they haven't. I'd easily call him our best forward right now, and that's not just because of his goals. He's the most unlikely player to step up and fill the void, and he's doing it exceptionally well. That says a lot.

Cool story bro, but please elaborate.

Hodgson: 2 goals in 2GP
Kassian: 2 goals in 3GP

How is Kasian > Hodgson? There is not enough data to back up your hypothesis. Come back in a few months before pre-ejaculating.

I don't expect him to play this well on a consistent basis yet... he is still a really young guy and it is likely that he will have a few slumps throughout the season.

Having said that, power forwards generally don't mature until 26-28 years old. Dude only turns 22 tomorrow (Happy B-Day BTW). Once his body matures and he packs on another 20 pounds he could be great.

If he never improves from this level and can just learn to bring it on most nights, he is already a much better fit for our team than Hodgson.
