lol he's already dominated in the AHL. 26 points in 30 games last year. He has nothing else to prove there.
This is just like Hodgson all over again. People were all calling him a bust till the Boston slapshot goal.
How can Kassian prove himself if he was playing 4 minutes a game? Hodgson barely made the 4th line 2 years ago, trained a full offseason [like what Kassian is doing right now] and it did wonders for Hodgson.
Definitely agree. The 2013 draft is supposedly the deepest draft since 2003, and Columbus has 3 first rounders next year.
That's only if Columbus stops drafting Russians that doesn't want to play for them.
Hahaha Hope Solo...
Not defending him like some CDCers do, but give Kassian a break, the guy is 21. I still remember last year where once he has the puck along the boards, it was tough for the dman to push him away. I certainly hope he'll become that physical big winger we needed.
Nash no trade clause is the kicker between Ryan and him.
To many people surprises, I think there is a market out there for Ballard and Raymond as much as we say they suck, some team will take the chances with them. $4.2 for Ballard when dman salaries are rising like this?
jason king dominated the ahl didn't he? AHL stats don't really matter until the player translates it into the NHL.
If Kassian improves his skating and hitting, everything else would fall into place. He was lost last season, getting called on penalties and he completely stopped playing the body. The coaches need to coach him.
Anyone else getting tired of Gillis making all these excuses?
You either get the guy or you don't. Telling the whole world what your failed plan was does absolutely nothing good for the team especially when you're trying to deal lu
We live in Vancouver. If MG cant land Nash, Weber or deal Luongo the fans of Vancouver will wanna know why. If he doesnt say anything then the idiots out there (theres alot of them) will think MG aint doing shit and hes just twiddling his thumbs.
