Datsyuk would probably love to have another Russian on the team.

Kassian is a meathead. Do not want.

Oh this young man has had a very trying rookie season, with the litigation, the notoriety, his subsequent deportation to Canada and that country's refusal to accept him, well, I guess that's more than most 21-year-olds can handle... Ogie Ogilthorpe!

Even off the ice. I can't speak for anyone else, obviously... but Kassian has come back to Windsor several times since I've worked at a bar in the downtown sector. Every time I've seen him, he's been kind of a jerk. On one occassion, he walked up to me at the door, and we ID'd the people he was with (they looked younger). Long story short I got the, "do you know who I am?" and "Oh good, do you want my autograph?" treatment. I told him I could live without the signature, so he spent the rest of the night banging his bottles off the tables and staring me down. Good times.

 

Can't stand the ass and don't ever want him here.

It's bizarre to me that they haven't signed somebody who Datsyuk could relate to more.

Haven't been any Russians available that aren't text book D bags. I'm surprised we haven't drafted another Russian other than Marchenko... Though they are proving to be riskier to draft

Wanted Grigs Kuznetsov so bad when the caps got him that draft.

Is there a kickstarter campaign for Jakub Kindl to never play another NHL game?

Holland will only sign a player of those proportions if he's soft and old (think Todd Bertuzzi).

 

It will take a new GM and coach before we can expect power forward type players to come here.


According to my profile, my reputation is excellent. LOL.

I liked the "idea" of Zack Kassian, and often was pro Kass on lgw. But living in the Vancouver market, I've see enough of him to buy what you are saying, and pass on Zack.

We don't take Sean Avery type assholes in Detroit, we trade them to teams like Vancouver and Pittsburgh.  I'd take Hodgson in a heartbeat though :lol: .

When Buffalo drafted him I've liked the guy too but his actions, behaviour is unacceptable and not something I'd want in a locker room filled with veterans AND young guns - he just isn't a role model. Give me Gazdic who is a way better enforcer AND also a decent hockeyplayer.

All I ever needed to know about him:

Shortly after joining Windsor, he was given a 20-game suspension from the league for his hit to the head of Barrie Colts forward Matt Kennedy during a game in January 2010

I always imagine what it would have been like to get a guy like tarasenko and let Datsyuk mentor him his whole career

I'm not sure what it is with people on these boards wanting to pick up Vancouver's scraps. But I would pass unless it cost us literally nothing.

Legwand to the best of my knowledge has never been suspended in his 14 year NHL career. He gave an ill-advised cheapshot to one of the dirtiest star players in the league.

Kassian has been suspended twice this season alone for a total of 8 games. 2 seasons in the NHL, 2 suspensions. Then there's the 20 game suspension he received for a headshot in the OHL. Then there's his 3 game suspension in the OHL playoffs. Then there's the 1 game suspension in the WJC. Then there's him being charged with assault after a bar fight in Windsor.

The only time you hear about the guy is when he's done something idiotic.



EDIT: Not sure I've got all his suspensions straight, but it's so many it's hard to keep track.
