Is Kassians so far brief "fame" all from being on a line with the twins?

Considering the Seding have only assisted on 2 of his 5 goals I would say no they are not the only reason he's doing so well. He has made alot of progress since last year

Obviously more ice time is going to give more opportunities and playing with the Sedins is also going to make anyone look better, but they haven't been at 100% themselves. Kassian is a good fit right now, and he's being rewarded for the effort he's putting in. With the team being so inconsistent and still missing key players, I'm not going to complain if Kassian decides to step up and play the rock star.

Not sure if he'll stay on the top line when the team is healthy, but he'll most likely keep producing if he keeps working the way that he has been.

Any problem caused by a tank Edler can also be solved by a tank Edler.

I think he's doing well in spite of playing with the twins, but getting the extra ice time because he's playing with them certainly helps. And even if they aren't playing the greatest right now he can still learn a lot from them.

How about he is really well conditioned, and playing beside the twins who free up space for him by drawing more defenders, and as a result with Kass big body to hold off single opponents, well you do the math

Plenty of players haven't worked out when put with the Sedins so while obviously being surrounded by better players helps the Sedins certainly aren't the only reason the first line works.

When you think about it more guys haven't worked with the Sedins than have.


I don't agree with you!
You name it!

Klatt, Bert, Carter and many others have some kind of chemistry with the twins.

Only Nazzy and Sundin didn't work with the Sedins.

Actually I find the Sedin aren't as dominant as they have been with Burrows. Less cycles with Kassian.

When Kesler comes back i wouldn't mind bringing Burrows back with the twins and Kassian with Kesler.

Bernier, Wellwood, Shannon, King, Samuelson, Pyatt, just off the top of my head. None of these guys worked. Pyatt was with them nearly an entire season and they couldn't elevate him much.

Also you can't really include Klatt. Yeah he had chemistry with them but really it's not quite what this thread is talking about and I'm not sure Bertuzzi ever really played on a line with the Sedins for any amount of time. I know it was after Naslund broke his leg in march but it wasn't great so Bertuzzi didn't really "work" with the Sedins.

Guys who have really worked well with them in Vancouver (which excludes Weinhandl) are Carter, Burrows and now Kassian.

Kassian is playing good with the Sedins but I think the Sedins play better with Burrows as well. I actually think Kassian would benefit more from being on a line with Booth and Kes just because they are shoot first and Kassian likes to charge the net. There are many times I watch the Sedins cycle with each other while Kassian is in front of the net and there isn't even a shot.

I tend to think with a power forward like Kassian you need someone with a shoot first mentality so that he can be there to screen and clean up the garbage.

I'd like to see them try this when Kes and Booth return to the line-up and put Burrows back on the first line.

Kassian is good, and will get his points no matter who he plays with. However if you've ever been to a game, you can see that ANY player that gets to play with Henrick is going to get more points than they would anywhere else. This guy is simply amazing. One of the best players to watch in person I think. He and Joe Thornton are in another league when it comes to controlling the puck.
