For anyone who missed The Province's Legion of Blog entry about it:

Matt Kassian of the Minnesota Wild has a trademark on the nickname Kassassin in both the US and Canada. He even has the website domain and apparently has people contacting anyone on Twitter who uses it in reference to Zack to stop.

Read Wyatt Arndt's blog entry for more information:
http://blogs.theprov...an-be-only-one/

So, it seems "Kassassin Mode" is off the table as a nickname for our Kass for all but rebels, outlaws and people who really don't give a crap what an often healthy scratch fourth liner from Minnesucky (TRADEMARKED, before Matt Kassian gets any ideas!) has to say.

But just in case, maybe we should spitball some other possible nicknames for our Kass. Any suggestions?

Kassmanian Devil, Kass Money, Badassian...this guys got the most natural-sounding nicknames of any Canuck, can't be too hard.

Kassquatch still gets my vote

I don't think you can trademark a friggin nickname. And besides, Kassian > Kassian. I think the nickname should go to the better player and clearly Kassian is better.

Kassanova? - For the girls that like burly hockey players that look like hockey players should
Kass n' Slash? - If he starts making a name for himself slashing other players
Kasshin in? - If he holds out for a big contract sometime in his career
Kass my ass? - If he starts to fall out of favor of the fans but just doesn't care
Kassarole? - If his career tanks and he becomes a 4th line role player
Kassanassarassafritz? - ?????
Killer Kassian? - If he decides to try the Bertuzzi Maneuver
Kassinator? - This one might be good if he destroys Matt Kassian in a game sometime.
Kasstle Greyskull? - what?
Kass the Glass - If he turns out to be super fragile and gets injured all the time.
Kassian the Kardashian - Should he be adopted by the Kardashian family


But Probably it will be Kass - I do like Kassquatch - But pretty much its his teamates that decide the nickname and most likely they just call him Kass.

The best thing that Matt Kassian can hope for in his hockey future is that he might occasionally be mistaken for Zack. He's already a Minnesota player...its only downhill from here.

How about Kassius? Change the "C" with a "K"...

Description: "Cassius is depicted as one of the first people who wants Julius Caesar dead. He is one of the figures who devised the plot for Caesar's death, and also acted as one of the assassins. The real Cassius was also one of the main players in the death of Caesar."

Now, I'm not condoning such violence, but the image of Kassian as a hired gun (i.e., a power forward, acting as deterrent to other team's pugilistic liberties with the likes of the Sedins, Raymond, Schroeder) sort of fits.

As well, one of the most notable historic figures is Cassius Clay (AKA, Mohammed Ali), who many, including myself, believe to be the greatest heavyweight champion of all time...I'm sure Eager Beaver Ben would agree that the name is appropos for our man Zack.

For the record, I also like Kassquatch...especially with the picture of him that's gone viral since Leno showed it; Kass does look beastly in that shot.

Why people read signatures:
  • It is an acceptable way to stare at women.
  • Allows people to have a counter-argument by insulting what is in a persons signature (pooh-pooh fallacy).
  • Allows people to show that they like a man and they put colourful things around the picture of a man(usually a hockey player :P).
  • To watch a funny GIF or a funny pic.
  • Funny Quote or Saying
So I have no clue why are you reading my signature!
