    Default Z Kassian

    Multi-cat stud in the making it appears. Is this year his coming out party? Chances he stays with the Sedins?

    The injuries and lack of depth is a blessing for him right now. They got no choice but to keep throwing him out there. It's all valuable training for him, especially if he can stick with the Sedins and do all their dirty work in the corners and in front of the net for them.

    He's going to be extra physical to make up for their lack of physicality, I am hoping he gets a decent shot to stay on that line when(if) Vancouver is healthy.

    Real impressed watching this kid against the flames. He's exactly what VAN needed and has all the incentive to fill up the stat sheet and prove his worth. My main league count's hits and PIMs, so he was kind of a no brainer, even in a one year.

    He looked great last night, my league also includes PIMS and Hits. Can't decide if I should drop Dorsett for him, I'll prob stay put for now and watch him over a couple more games. I know Dorsett will continue to get lots of ice time.

    Should I drop Hagelin for him?

    A lot of power forwards like him struggle with consistency and I think he's far from being a finished product. In multi-cat leagues he should be fine because hits and PIM are more predictable and easy to obtain than G and A.

    Daoust,
    Did you see Kassian play much being from ONT yourself? What's he need to improve? Correct me if I'm wrong, but to me he plays more like a skilled scorer/shooter in a big mans body than a "power forward" per se. 6'3 legs are money in today's NHL and let's not forget he was the 13th overall pick in 2009 (after Kadri/Schenn). I'll take guys that can move like this any day of the week. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ciVzPGf4xLQ

    Obviously he'll be expected to play a gritty role for the Nucks, but I wouldn't sell him short in points.

    I didn't talk about his style of play. I'm talking about production and this is a one year league. I'm definitely not selling him short if I say he will probably have issues with consistency this year.

    Never said you were selling him short. And those were legitimate questions, btw. Either way, he's an interesting player for multi-cat one-years who will no doubt have some dry spells adjusting to the League.

    I like this guy.

    In a one-year roto league (not the one in my sig), with G, A, +/-, PIM, FOW, GWG, SOG, PPP, SHP, how do you think Kassian stacks up to Peverley? With Peverley getting 3rd line minutes (although still on PP1 I think) and Kassian getting 1st line and PP1, I think the edge might go to Kassian. I would be giving up FOW with Peverley but probably gain PIMs. Since I am currently first in FOW and last in PIMs this seems like the right move.

    Dropping Peverley seems extreme though (my only bench forwards are Steen and Vermette, who are also producing). If I am crazy to do this, please talk me out of it!

    I just dropped Kulikov who has been effing useless for Kassian. Vancouver has a pretty favourable schedule next week anyhow.

    Glad to finally have a Canuck on my main fantasy squad.

    I grabbed Kass in my limited keeper and dropped Morrow. Figured it was a good swap in this conndensed season. Not sure he'll be one of my eight keepers, but he's worth the shot considering who I dropped.
