I saw a few good, clean hits tonight against Detroit and none of them were by Kassian, our supposed physical presence.
Pinozotto has one
Edler had a great one on Franzen I believe!
Weise had one (on Datsyuk)
Kesler had one (on Datsyuk again)
That's what you have to do to good players like Datsyuk, unless you're more skilled than him and basically nobody on the Canucks is.
All I saw Kassian do was get poke-checked at the Detroit line...Sigh. Pathetic. Doesn't even try to throw a hit. Oh and he was on the second line tonight, 13:19 TOI and did nothing. So what's his excuse this game? He was playing with Kes and MayRay....
Kassian was credited with 3 hits last night.The only comparables were Lappy/Wesie with 4 and Hansen/ Alberts with 3. When you looked up all those stats including Kassians TOI, you would have seen that there. Yes one hit was memorable, he stapled a Wing in front of the benches.
I am just going to assume the truth couldn't get through your hate filter...
