Kassian's chance with Kes

43 posts in this topic

I think Kassian is the only player to have EVERY player as his linemates......

He's young. When I was 22yrs I was as lazy as a sloth. By the end of my 20's I had the best work ethic at my worksite. He's got a lot of hockey ahead of him. He'll find his game. Even at his worst, he's really not that bad.

He's progressing alot. each game he gets better. He scored goals in the first few but how did the sedins do?? I cant wait to see him in 3 years when he's 23 24 he will be a 2nd line beast. It takes time to develop a great pf he's still so young if he plays 3rd line mins this season great he will be that much more rounded a player when he matures. I think if he gets 10 mins a game while splitting duty up and down the line up the canucks and kass will be better for it. I loved his quote when he said "You didn't expect me to actually score 48 goals this season did you? Ok good!"

A fight, an assist and 1 step from a Gordie. That's more like it.

One thing that bugs me, and maybe I am wrong, but when their shift is over I don't see Kesler talking to Kassian. Hank is always talking to his wingers about the last shift and Kesler should be the leader of his line. Maybe he doesn't want to rock the boat just getting back, but I would like to see him work with our budding young powerforward.

Well if Kesler would learn to use his linemates that would sure help. 5 on 5 that 2nd line is useless. Too much north south going on; that's what happens when he tries to carry the line on his back.

......He's never done it before ! What makes you think he'll ever start.

.................Kesler can just NOT play with his linemates.He can only create a disjointed line......(Proof) Check the last 3 seasons and the many many wingers he's had and unable to gel with.

Man all those wingers MUST have issues.Obviously not Kesler........oh wait ! I took off my glasses and it really does help to see the problem.

Yes, because Samuelsson's 30 goal and back to back 50 point seasons had absolutely nothing to do with Kesler...

i still think kassian should be with the sedins. burrows is better by himself then kassian is and its nice having a big body with the sedins to protect them and create space.. burrows and kesler on the 2nd line with booth would be decent, altho i doubt booth and kesler ever really gel.

...You're perfectly correct they didn't.He got them despite Kesler.

Samuelsson never needed Kesler.

Might not NEED Kesler but it's easy to draw the conclusion that Kesler made Samuelsson better being that his career high totals peaked when he was playing with him.

....Again it was despite him.Samuelsson knew his time was entering the twilight of his career and he himself re-juvenated his game.

Nice assumption, weird that his game was even more re-juvenated during the playoffs then? Maybe Samuelsson was the real superstar and we just overlooked him...
