BlueLemming Posted July 27, 2013 Share Posted July 27, 2013 Which line and role do you think he would be most effective at? Under Torts, he'll have to earn his playing time. Would he fit in the top 2 lines? I see these as his potential roles (as probably everyone else does): 1st line - Play in the corners, fight for the puck and rough up whoever targets the twins. However, to be effective, he'll have to be able to keep up with the twins and understand their game. 2nd line - Be the power forward that can bring the puck to the net; but Booth already does this so do we need both on the 2nd line? (Otherwise booth goes to 3rd line?) 3rd line - Typical 3rd line checker, but could benefit from Hansen's speed to produce points. Higgins-Richardson-Kassian could be an interesting line as well. 4th line - Hit and fight. I'm in favour of the AMeX line (higgins-kes-booth) but I really feel Kassian needs to at least be on the 2nd line to develop the game that he is working toward. If he doesn't produce however, does sticking him on the 3rd line (and likely changing his role) help him? I always felt he had no idea what player to be under AV. The better question might be: who would be Kassian's best linemates? Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
