I was pretty mixed about the trade at the time, but now I love it. I was so excited to see what Kassian could become but Hodgson is a very skilled player, albeit an average skater with no physicality to his game.

Kassian has potential to be an absolute monster, much like Bertuzzi was. That type of player is so valuable beyond goals. Not only can Kassian score, but his passing and vision is VERY underrated (people are noticing it now, but it has stood out to me all along). He can dominate physically, win battles along the boards, score goals, set-up plays, defend teammates, and throw momentum swinging hits.

He is by no means a sniper but I think his complete package makes him a rare and extremely valuable player. There are more "Hodgson-type" players than "Kassian-type" players.
Sig too big.

I love how recognizable the faces are in your jabs. AV looks perfect too. Good one.

He uses photoshopped images and touches them up with Illustrator (or similar). If you scour the web you can find most of the images in their unchopped forms. Like clip art kinda. Although there is a fair amount of creativity in the final results.
To be fair, I'm sure he doesn't have time to illustrate from scratch given how much he puts out in the amount of work it would take. A lot of his stuff is freehand, but not usually the Straight Jab stuff you see here.

Miller is not on our list. It's Lack as our #1. There is no reason we would have traded both Schnieder and Luongo if we never intended to give Lack the #1 starting job.  Furthermore, the salary and term Miller is looking for is not in our favor.

I don't think he ever did get a denture, just like Ovechkin...


I believe he does have dentures. My colleague saw him at Holt Renfrew and he had it in.

Best grin ever


He has a great hockey player's grin. Now that I don't play anymore, I'm getting an implant - but I won't have anywhere to save a really good peanut for later.

Love his grin, tooth missings just priceless. But he does have a cap/denture/something he puts in for his tooth sometimes, I've seen pictures where at least it looks like it.

How long until we're making a Kassian song? He is the 'next Bertuzzi' after all...
