He wanted more ice time and he was the most demanding player Gillis had ever dealt with. How the hell did you expect him to get more ice time behind Henrik and Kesler? Move Kesler to the 3rd line? no you don't.
I remember Gillis saying there were seven players that he wanted in exchange for Hodgson, and Kassian was the only one on the market. If you want to argue the points as well, he's also a purely offensive player, while Kassian is compared to Bertuzzi. Also consider that he's playing on Buffalo's first line, and that's a large factor in why he has more points. Kassian was amazing with the Sedins, but the Sedins play better with Burrows.
Think things through before you post.
