Kassian RFA year

308 posts in this topic

I'm not bring up another Hodgson VS Kassian thread. We should be already past that.

What would you guys do with Kassian this off season? I would probably just offer him a 2 year contract worth $1million/year.

He's 23 now and I think for the next 2 years if he's still putting up similar stats he should be considerred a AHLer/4th liner.

With Jensen now emerging, if Kassian still doesn't pan out like we hope, this could be his last contract with the canucks.

Sign him to a 1-2 year deal, if he isn't showing much more by the end of that... Don't keep him.

Hope we can lock him down for 2-3 years at a low cap hit.

My guess is we sign him for 2 years/2 mill per

With the cap going up he'll get 1.5-2 mil most likely. Hopefully we can lock him up for 3 years.

He's still got alot of work to do with his game, but it's slowly coming around. When he gets away from all the dumb stuff, he's actually a pretty skilled player. That no look pass he made on Schroeder's goal was Sedin-like. He just needs to bring that sort of thing consistently. He's still only 23 though, so he's got time.

This is more thought out and articulate, as usual from Deniro.

Hope we can get him to sign for 3 years at 1.7.

Then he'll be a sleeper 30 goal scorer in another year.

I think Torts is actually the right coach for him, I'd like to keep him around for another 3 years @ 1.5-1.75mill per season. I think he shows some promise and in my opinion he looks better this year than last. If he keeps improving then he is worth keeping around

Lock him up for 4 years at 1.2

This is the first year I've seen glimpses of real skill from Kassian.

If he continues developing, he'll cost too much to re-sign in 2 years.

If he stays where he is, skill wise then were still paying him a decent 3rd line salary.

Kassian has had the luxury of playing with an experienced, $4.5 m salaried third liner in Booth.Ironic in that two of Gillis' largest boneheaded moves play together on the third line.

Be interesting to see Hodgson and Kassian play in the same game this coming Sunday.

With Jensen's emergence,Hansen's solid,two-way game and Burr's revival it seems Kassian may be plying 4th line minutes next year.

He could become a 70 point producer during this

Lucic in his best year only put up 60 points. I think with Kassian we are looking at a guy in the 40-50 point range.

Reason being, he is an inconsistent player, and he will most likely miss 5-10 games per season due to suspension.

He is now a repeat offender in the league, don't be surprised if his next suspension is 10 games.

We seem invested in him. He should get a fair deal all around. Could take a gamble and sign him to a 4 year deal at a lower price point.
