So....... I'm going to be perfectly blunt and say I've done a lot of Kassian bashing. I've called him useless, downright terrible, and made fun of him on NHL 13 so many times for being so bad. Well, I would just like to say I'm sorry Zack. You've just proved me wrong. 2 goals in 3 games, one of the best shootout goals I've ever seen, and damn you've looked to freaking awesome in every game! So, from the bottom of my heart, I apologize to you. You are pretty freaking awesome! I'm even becoming a fan of you! Keep it up buddy, put Cody to shame! :)

I like Kassian and I love what he's brought to the team in the last few games.

However, you rushed to a decision the first time and now, after only three games, you're rushing to a decision in the other direction.

Maybe we can just give him some time and be patient? I'm going to wait until the season is over, playoffs included, before I'm willing to make any strong predictions on this kid. And for the love of all that's holy, I will avoid the Hodgson comparisons for at least a few years.

I like him, he's got great potential, but let's just patiently give him some time.

Not a bandwagoner, he's just let me down in NHL 13 too many times. That and he was brutal last year. :P

Well it's only 3 games, Kassian has been known to be somewhat inconsistent, much like many other young players, so it may not last forever. However he's been sick so far, and he seems to have taken steps forward in his development.

Btw it's so awesome how much he looks like a sterotypical hockey player. Big, tough, Canadian, beard, unkempt curly flow, missing teeth, etc.

I am glad he is doing well. He has been playing for a few months too unlike some other players that haven't been playing until a week ago.
I hope he continues to play well.

I actually agree. I've been a fan of Kass since his junior days and have high expectations for him but let's not all start freaking out after a couple games. I've watched a lot of him in Wolves games and he'd have games like this and then disappear for a few games. So people better not flip and start calling him a bum again if he's MIA for a few games or so. He's still young and will struggle with consistency. Power forwards take time and people need to have patience.

I loved Kassian from the start, I knew he had potential in this league. I still believe he will be a top6 fwd in the NHL one day. I will be getting his jersey soon.

...Remember when Raymond was gonna be a 40 goal scorer? Remember when Shirokov was gonna be the "third Sedin?"

It was an excellent trade for both teams, Cody just wasn't happy here and that would have brought things south fast over the next couple seasons. Kassian was made expendable by Marcus Foligno and Buffalo needed a center. Both guys are going to be big for their teams and I think noone will really come out on top (except for Alex Sulzer who really found his game in Buffalo, haha).

This ^

All you Cody 'butt buddy' Hodgson lovers need to realize another soft, undersized finesse forward would not work on this team. Kass is everything this team needs, he seems to LOVE the game, he likes getting dirty and has a some sick dangles.

That being said, I'm still a Raymond basher and I will probably stay a Raymond basher - no bandwagoning here.

He also made part of his judgement of Kassian based on how he played in NHL 13...

He doesn't need to. I love Kass and he's been working hard all summer to get him to this point.

But 3 games doesn't mean anything. A good indication, but nothing solidified. People gotta be patient before jumping to a conclusion. A cold streak and people will go right back to calling him useless and yadda yadda.

Hopefully he continues to rip it up though, good on him.

Speaking of the troll, where is he? Like I said a 20 pt season and the way he keeps playing that's all I am asking from him.

Another victory in the book.

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....
