How can someone his size be so invisible!

I didn't like the trade when it happened and I REALLY don't like it now. I know Hodgson had to go, I get that. However, to give up a talent like Cody for the potential of Kassian? If he can't or wont play with desire at this stage in his career what is he going to be like in 5-6 years?

His stat line tonight:
Shots - 0
Hits - 0
In almost 14 minutes of ice time.

Could not be more disappointed with this guy.

Ya he just kind of floats around. A kid his age playing in the NHL should be so pumped. He looks like he doesn't really care. He fights but he's better then that.

I thought he looked great with Kesler. He's adjusting to having a new line-mate and they're showing signs of chemistry. He made some nice passes too and looked good along the boards.

Give it time, he's young and powerforwards take a bit longer to hit their prime. He'll get there.

Well he a lost cause then.


Yep, writing off a player in their early twenties is the best way to run a hockey club.

He's still young and needs time to grow. Why the hell can't some of you understand this simple fact? Why do you expect him to tear it up right out of the gate? He needs time and experience.

Is it just me... or does he looks like he panics whenever he touches the puck?

I can literally tell he's got the puck just by seeing the movements of his body... before I even recognize the face or the number. He holds his hands extremely high up on his stick. Almost like he's golfing. His puck possession skill is pretty abysmal to begin with, and holding his stick in such a way can't help.

I like the kid.. and I really want him to succeed... but his hockey iq just seems so low.

I don't expect him to light it up. However, I would like to see some passion and for him to use his size.

He has good chemistry with Kesler I really dont see anything wrong with that. But Kesler passes alot more so hopefully Kass will get some goals. People got too pumped up with him, so did I but im thinking hes no more than a 2-3rd line player unless he plays with the Sedins, well u could put Sestito with the Sedins and he will probably still get like 5 goals :P.

When you're headed to the playoffs and playing a non playoff team its pretty simple what you need to do. Win the game and avoid injuries. Mission accomplished. Whining that your power forward didn't bang enough in a mean nothing game is dumb. Reserve your judgement for the playoffs.

He was trying to make plays for kes and be back enough to be defensively in position.... That's what I saw.... He's sticking back by the d a lot .... Trying not to get benched I assume....

Fair comment. Definitely want to avoid injuries. Certainly hoping he shows up in the playoffs.

Give it a rest. He set up that Kesler goal last game in the Phoenix passing it to Bieksa, then it went to Raymond, and Kesler chipped it in. Once again he had the 3rd assist tonight on Raymonds goal. Just because he isn't on the score sheet doesn't mean he isn't chipping in. Btw the title is stupid ;)
