Would Kassian benefit from spending time in the AHL?

109 posts in this topic

Do you guys think Kassian would benefit from playing in the AHL? Quite frankly I don't he's ready to play top 6 minutes and in seasons past has not shown he can produce points consistently, I will give him 5-10 games to change my opinion of him. He would get way more minutes in Utica than playing on the 3rd or 4th line in the NHL. For wingers we have D.Sedin, Burrows, Higgins, Hansen, Santorelli, Booth and maybe even Richardson and Schroeder(depending who is the 3rd line center). That is a lot of wingers Kassian has to outplay in order to play on 1st 2nd and 3rd line...

What do you guys think?

higgins and booth have done nothing and have no chemistry with Kesler

Torts should try Kassian with Kesler

Sedin Sedin Hansen

Burrows Kesler Kassian

Higgins Santorelli

It ultimately comes down to personal drive and how badly he wants to make a difference on this team. Simply doing what you're told when you have so much more to give is a waste of time. Kassian needs to learn to open up and embrace his creative side.

Could say that about the bulk of the team though.

Shinkaruk looked 'more' NHL ready then Kass.

Kassian will benefit from playing with the Sedins full time.

A short stint may re-awaken the hunger...seems like he doesn't realize he should bang and crash...use his body like a big power forward to have success.

Kassian needs to play with the Sedins or Schroeder.. with an emphasis on scoring goals.

Kassian wasn't brought in primarily to score. More so we brought him to bring muscle and grit to this team. Scoring and points are just a surplus or a profit we gain from Kass. His domain is to be physical, intimidating and gritty. If he doesn't bring that we might as well kept Hodgson cause he is a better scorer than Kass.

The Canucks would benefit from Kassian in the AHL.
