First and foremost for his career, he needs to be sent down to play with Schroeder Jensen as a top unit on the wolves. Here is why...

If Schroeder got sent down for poor play why is Kassian still up? He's younger too I believe.
Everyone knows power forwards take longer to develop. Fact his both Schroeder and him aren't good enough yet

His development with this team and coaching staff is horrendous with how he's being coached and used. He looks completely lost and useless out on the ice and I have no idea why he doesn't get benched . Let him develop in the AHL because he clearly in over his head at the NHL level right now. He's not physical, weak on the puck, defensive liability and turnover machine. Hardly looks engaged in the game or takes the body consistently. He is lost!

From a fan standpoint we shouldn't have to see a player so bad get force fed a roster spot. I feel like the only reason why he's still on the club is because Mike Gillis wants to try an prove to everyone that he traded hodgson for another top prospect/nhler. He's hurting the club, everyone can see this except for the hardcore non critical Canuck fans.

Give the roster spot to someone more deserving or make a trade. The organization clearly has no confidence in him by failing to put him in better situations to succeed.

Let him develop in the AHL please, anyone can see that he's not a good NHLer right now.

Only way we can do that is if we trade for a winger (I believe), but they sure would gain a ton of chemistry down there.

They should put him back with the Sedins it would improve his game 100% and he will be there to protect them. Plus putting Burrows on the 2nd or 3rd line gives more offense to the other lines, its the obvious thing to do, so you know AV won't do it.

Really? Where is the meaness? Where's the hitting? Where's the consistent puck control and board play? Where is his defensive play? He adding nothing to the line up, even his fighting got replaced by sestito

No consistency is a poor term to describe Kassian because he doesn't show enough flashes for me to be consider a streaky player.

I'd want Kassian sent down because he shouldn't be exposed to the horrible attitude that is obviously present in the Canucks locker room.

So yes. Send down Kassian.

This is so hilarious. Force feeding this kid minutes because you wouldn't give a better player more icetime. I am sure that size and toughness will come in handy getting a better tee time in the spring. There's fighting in golf right?BTW Cody got a point tonight. Feel free to insert whatever lame excuse to justify this trade again.

When was the last time Kassian made a big hit? Let alone hitting consistently? If he's not being a physical force then atleast show some offense. Fact is he's doing neither while being a defensive liability, this is the whole point of this thread.

Flame me all you want but ill hit you back with I told you so's when the seasons over.. This is the best play I've seen from those 2 since they've been here. They're both skating and hitting like crazy, playin mean.

People keep complaining about Booth and Kassian but they've been the least of our problems lately.. Sure they haven't been able to put the puck in lately but they have been skating and getting chances. Why these two haven't even been tried on the power play the past few games is a mystery to me.

Burrows hasn't looked like mr. clutch this season yet. Nows the time to give Kassian his playing time before Burrows comes around.

They have been getting chances? I will have to disagree.. they may have a couple per game but the quality of the chances are poor at best.. they are not really threatening at all other then the moments where booth has driven hard to the net.
Kassian has been largely invisible.. not a lot of hits, low amount of scoring opportunities and even his passing which i thought was really good for the last couple months has been terrible lately.

If he is not able to be a physical presence, playmaker or put the puck in the goal then he shouldnt dress for the games.

I thought it was cute that 5'8" Schroeder was sent down after a failed stint as a bruising 4th line C and not being able to QB the PP and get his canon of a shot off. :rolleyes:

I disagree. We need to try a different experiment like putting him with the Sedins before we scratch him or send him down. If nothing is working then I agree.

Kassian is the least of our problems. What we should be worried about is our lack of effort night in and night out. I still can't figure out what the problem is, but it seems like every team is faster than us and we get outworked because of it every game.

It's almost like a CoHo curse because ever since we trady Cody every single one of our guys has started to skate like him.

It seems like the defense are hesitant to give him the puck in their own end sometimes since he has so much trouble breaking out.

I think he should be put on the Sedin line and should go out and nail every player he can on the first few shifts, that should scare some players off and give them lots of space to work with.

My grandma would look good playing with the Sedins. Jason King looked good playing with the Sedins. What is the point if he has to play with the Sedins to "look good". Burrows is the only player that has the best chemistry with the Sedins. Kassian needs to play better with others players aside from the Sedins.

Be nice if he had some steady linemates for more than a few games to gain some chemistry.... I think he's been shuffled more than anyone....
