Bert and Kass are very similar in a manner of speaking, Bert was tossed from NYI cuz he wasn't developing but also for attitude problems and taking stupid penalties. I wish I could say I see room for improvement in Kass tho... He doesn't have that "I'm gonna prove you fuckers wrong" glare that Bert had.
no jimmies rustled, just found the 90% number funny. I don't disagree with any of what you said
In all honesty, I think we hold Kassian to a higher standard because of what Mike Gillis pegged him as when we acquired him, similar to how Kevin Weekes was proclaimed to be the goalie of the future. Was Steve Bernier held to that same level of scrutiny? It certainly softens the blow knowing that CoHo has more or less become just as irrelevant as Kassian.
Having said that, the Islanders traded away a young pre-developed Bertuzzi, promising young d-man in Bryan McCabe, and a 3rd rounder for a just past his prime Trevor Linden back in the day. So it shows what kind of value a non-developed potential power forward holds, or held.
you cant break down that linden trade in anyway simply because milbury was the GM and swung that deal...he was so bad...

What, this doesn't put the fear of God into you?
Even Mike Keenan acknowledged that Bert was open and willing to put in the work and learn the game. After several setting and coaching changes, it seems that Kass isn't able to even understand what this means, yet... (or ever?)
Yeah...I wish I got paid millions for my fuck ups.
Can you imagine the dynasty the isles could've had if he had even an ounce of gm knowledge
Luongo as the goalie...Chara and Berrard on d, picked Gaborik/Heatley instead of DiPietro
Had McCabe, Bertuzzi, ...Torres on the bottom six
Not given up the selection that became Spezza.

possibly one of the dumbest hockey-related opinion articles i've read in a while...i wanna find this guy and smack him with a newspaper.
He's ripping on a 19 yr old playing his first full nhl season using advanced stats...what the actual fuck...good job bro, you can fucking use numbers and make advanced analysis based on advanced stats, fucking amazing! Where's the nobel prize for the greatest hockey opinion based on advanced stats? What? It doesn't exist? Someone make it for this guy!
did you expect brilliant numbers or something?
those EDM 7th round speculation were mere rumors, and trading a franchise-type goaltender to a division rival? it would need to be a pretty sweet deal for that to happen.
