AV has to be a bonehead not to put Kassian on the Sedins line for the Anaheim game. He's been repeating how he wants someone to step up into the top-9 forward group.
Well, Kassian plays with the Sedins briefly for around 10 seconds after a penalty kill, pushes off one of the best defencemen in the game in Keith and scores the game winning goal in the TINY opportunity he gets given.
Sorry but Burrows is just too small and agile to do that sort of play in front of the net. He may be great at deflections and screens, but isn't big and physical like Kassian is.
Wow if you put ebbett with the SEDINS he will likely shine lol why the hell does kassian of all players deserve top line minutes rather then burrows who works his butt off game after game. Unless kassian shows he can be physical every single shift and game their is no reason he DESERVES to play on the top line.
Edit: I would agree with you if AV gave kassian those "10 seconds" of playing time for the first time after his 6 goal streak then you would have a point. But kassian gets to play with the Sedins every shift after a penalty kill, so where were you then ?
