Re: Canucks get Zack Kassian

IN response to the "you guys paid Vanek so much ZOMG" comment a few pages back, that contract was awarded after we saw Darcy Regier actually handcuffed by the in-house cap and being forced to watch Chris Drury and Danny Briere both walk. I think it was Montreal that offered Vanek a ridiculous offer...

Re: Canucks get Zack Kassian

Everything I have heard out this kid's mouth impresses me. He sounds like a very respectful kid and a gentle giant off the ice. He comes across as a real humble guy and extremely excited and eager to be on a contender and a Canadian team. A friend of mine from Michigan saw him in a bar a few weeks/...

Re: Canucks get Zack Kassian

His game last night was terrible. He was pretty good in the previous 3, but we've got issues that start with "R" and end with "oy" to address. He's seemingly able to suck the life and talent on any line. I wouldn't be surprised to see CoHo bumped up to the #1 spot to see if we can get our 7mill man ...

Re: Canucks get Zack Kassian

...not quite sure where you are going Fred as the post is a bit confusing but I would say that the self motivation in the Canucks locker room is left to vets (or better said ceded to those who have demonstrated an ability to toe the line) and the young players are handled in a much different fashio...

Re: Canucks get Zack Kassian

Who cares what the Sabres do? Regier has had years to build that Sabres team and evidently he's not too concerned about beating the Boston Bruins - what is the Sabres track record against that team? The Bruins have picked up 7 of 8 possible points against the Sabres this year while outscoring them ...

Ok, ok. Sorry. The first 3-4 are Foligno, and after that, it's all Kassian.

Re: Canucks get Zack Kassian

...Hodgson is a smart player who is completely dedicated to hockey. I'm not sure if he has explosiveness, quickness, size and speed to be a top-flight centre, but he should be a good point producer who excels on the PP. Still waiting for him to get that gorilla of a first goal (or even point) as a ...

Re: Canucks get Zack Kassian

Of course as we move on it seems Sabers fans are trying to make this about other things like Zack's work ethic and attitude, which much like the nonsense about Codys agent, is just fluff. I suppose the only reason I bring them up is because they're the only negative things I can think of about him....

Re: Canucks get Zack Kassian

No, the drama I'm talking about is before he was even in the AHL; the Sabres organization has a big doghouse, and players that find themselves in it early are usually left there early and often. It's a case of a short temper and a bad attitude, and I think once the Sabres got the hint of that, they ...

Re: GDT: Expansion cousins - Van vs Buf - 7pm - Taxpayer TV

He's going to need to get with the program and learn defence or he'll be back in the press box. AV pairing him with Rome (our weakest D) was a really bad idea though. Edler & Bieksa had some of these bonehead moments too, it helped pairing them with a responsible partner. Probably what MAG needs to...
