Couple quotes from today.

Quote:
Mason Raymond: "I'm not going to go out and totally revamp my game. You can be a well-rounded player no matter what you're needed to do."
Quote:
Zack Kassian on vaulting to second line: "I didn't expect anything. I'm working hard because it can be taken away from you in a second."
Quote:
AV on Booth-Kesler-Kassian: "They've got speed, size and skill and two of the three have a little edge. If it works out it's a good line."
Quote:
AV on Raymond as fourth liner: "We're going to need him down the road, need that 25-goal scorer, but I've got to look at the big picture."

Good move, Coach AV! Putting Kassian on the second line gives that line more size with scoring punch.

Was Kassian playing on the second unit powerplay during the Buffalo game last week? -missed most of the game, only saw the highlights.

Kass has the size to block the goalie's view of the puck and the hands to put the puck into the net. He's worth a try on the PP.

Completely Canuck-related and extremely relevant, ironic, and bittersweet:



Super random and not Canucks-related but I thought these pics were hilarious:

@theScore: The Boston Bruins have announced that the club has signed 10-year NHL veteran G Marty Turco to a one-year contract. Change of plans | The Score

Quote:
Turco will be placed on waivers, and can join the Bruins on Wednesday if he clears. He will not be eligible to play for Boston in the playoffs.

Looks like Rask is out a while, then. I wonder how many games Timmy can play in the playoffs before burning out. Turco is not someone I would be comfortable backing up my team.

Im not 100% sure how it works but doesn't that mean there's like 23 teams that can claim him off waivers before he actually gets to Boston?


Turco's fall from grace is kinda sad. his career fell apart from being a top 5 goalie to not playing anywhere over like 1 year. Same as Brodeur altho Brodeur is older

you dont know what i mean because you missed the point. i didnt compare the 2, i just pointed out similarities in their downfalls.

turco and brodeur both went from top 5 goalies to playing absolutely terrible over one summer.
turco was a stud in dallas for a decade until 2010. the next year he didnt get re signed, and the year after he didnt have a job
brodeur was arguably the best goalie in the league until 2010. the next year he struggled to salvage the season and is now being outplayed by his backup johan hedberg.

In all fairness, after Brodeur's horrible tanking and injury last season, he's played decently well this year...

one of the main reason's why Devils are in a playoff spot too.....

I see. But for Brodeur, I think it is expected anyways. He is 40 years old afterall. He should be retired by now.

Turco isn't young either. He's 37.

Toronto should pick Turco up, their goalies are absolute shit and if they have any chance on makin the playoffs they should use him. Plus fuck up Boston in the process....... fuck the first reason. Fucking Boston up is the only reason they need.

Similar to what a few fans were yelling out on Saturday at the Buffalo game.
I was at the game sitting behind the net, and these guys in my section were yelling " HOW'S THE SILVER, MILLER?"

haha, our fans are so classy.. XD

Zack Kassian since the trade: 3GP 1G 1A 2P 16 hits 8 shots +- 0 ATOI = 11:30

Cody Hodgson since the trade: 4GP 0G 0A 0P 3 hits 8 shots +2 ATOI = 16:50

CoHo with 3 points in his last 17.



Good article on Kass as well!

MacIntyre: Canucks' Zack Kassian forced to grow up fast

Zack Kassian looks so much a man among men it is easy to forget how young he is — even for the big brother who helped raise him.

“A lot of times, people don’t realize he’s just 21,” Mike Kassian said Monday. “People look at him like he’s a man, but he’s still a boy. And sometimes he does boy things. With the things that happened, he had to grow up really quickly.”

You wouldn’t have known any of this from watching Zack Kassian play Saturday night on Hockey Night in Canada as the big power forward from little Kingsville, Ont., had one goal, an assist, seven hits and helped drag the Vancouver Canucks back into their game against the Buffalo Sabres.

His 21st birthday was six weeks ago.

Kassian could still be playing junior hockey in Windsor.

This is his first professional season. His minor-league apprenticeship lasted all of 30 games with the Rochester Americans.

Last week’s shock trade for Cody Hodgson brought the Sabres’ prospect to the Canucks. He may never leave the National Hockey League.

Canucks coach Alain Vigneault said Monday that the team’s pro scouts believed the 2009 first-round pick would be a top-six forward in the NHL.

“How long that’s going to take him, I’m not quite sure,” Vigneault said.

Apparently, 2˝ games. Vigneault promoted Kassian to the second line from the fourth on Saturday and Kassian, Ryan Kesler and David Booth dominated physically. Booth and Kassian scored in the third period before an empty-net goal secured the Sabres’ 5-3 win.

Kassian, whose boyish thing Monday was arriving late for practice, skated with Booth and Kesler, and the line will likely stay together for tonight’s game against the Dallas Stars. Skewed only a little by Kassian’s 230-pound frame, the trio average 6-2 and 215 pounds and have the power, size and skill to become a modern-day Legion of Doom.

“At least I can keep up in the weight department at 220,” Booth said. “When you have speed and skill and size, that’s pretty hard to defend. With the way guys train ... if [Kassian] dedicates himself over the next couple of years, there is no limit for him.”

Kassian has dedicated himself to hockey pretty well so far.

His dad, Mike Sr., died of a rare heart abnormality when Zack was eight. A mother of four, Shirley Kassian ran a cleaning business to support her family. Her husband had worked at the Chrysler plant in Windsor.

“My mom is an unbelievable person to be able to do what she did,” Zack said. “When I look back, it was crazy how she was able to do it all. I feel very grateful. If it wasn’t for her and my siblings to look out for me, and for my older brother to be a father figure, I probably wouldn’t be where I am today.”

Shirley Kassian visits later this week to help Zack settle in Vancouver. Amber, 24, the younger of Zack’s two sisters, is flying in from Alberta.

Mike Jr., 32, who works in sales for Spirol Industries, which supplies components for manufacturing, hopes to visit Vancouver in the spring. The eldest Kassian child is Stephanie, 34. Zack is the baby.

“Growing up without a father, but being very family oriented, we always did things together,” Mike said in a telephone interview. “There was so much family support. We had grandparents’ help, and my mom, my older sister, aunts, uncles, teachers, everyone.

“I always worried about my younger siblings. How were they going to grow up? What was life going to be like for them [without dad]? What would other kids say? But I think that bump in the road and that terrible situation for Zack also gave him courage and made him a stronger person.”

The Kassian kids all get checked annually to make sure they’re not developing the same heart condition that afflicted their father.

“Right before my draft, all the NHL teams that were interested in me made me go do heart scans and those crazy things,” Zack explained after practice. “I do get checked every year, me and my whole family, and everything is good.

“What happened to my father was a fluke. You can’t live scared and wonder if it will happen to you. You’ve got to move forward. It was a very rare disease.”

Mike Kassian spent a lot of time with his little brother. Instead of going out with friends on the weekend, he’d hang out with Zack. Mike said it never felt like a sacrifice.

But Shirley joked in an interview a couple of years ago: “I blame Zack that I don’t have any grandchildren because [Mike] is always with him. He’s always been there for him, always a phone call away, makes sure he has everything. He says: ‘Don’t worry mom, I’ll take care of him.’ ”

Although nothing can compare to the loss of his father, there have been other bumps along the way for Zack. Two year ago, he was suspended 20 games for targeting the head of an Ontario League opponent, and a scuffle outside a Windsor bar resulted in an assault charge that was dropped when Kassian agreed to a fine and community service.

“Some of the things that happened were definitely tough,” he said Monday. “But there’s no choice but to learn from them and move forward and mature as a person.”

Asked about this season and how much his life has changed, Kassian said: “It’s flown by, to be honest. My time in Rochester, I don’t even remember it that much now. I’m just trying to take it a day at a time and trying to get better each day. If you’d asked me a year ago about being on the Vancouver Canucks, I would have laughed. It’s an awesome opportunity.

“I’ve just turned 21. I still have a lot of things to learn. I’m going to be a sponge and try to learn things as soon as possible. But saying that, it takes time and years in this league to fully mature.”

Imagine then, the player Kassian could become.
