Can I second that?
How many times have it read a longish Bersnoozi post trying to figure out the context until I see a quote at the bottom that finally makes it clear wtf he's on about...

Kassian recalled. I wonder if they just wanted a roster spot in case of another deal.

He got into at least one game on the farm, looked good scoring off the opening faceoff.

Galagher hinted that it was a hush hush disciplinary stint for partying while he was supposed to be recuperating from his back problem. Posters in the HF board Chicago Wolves said he was dominant with Archibald yesterday so maybe the message was received?

Ahhh. That makes sense then. Good on the Canucks if thats the case and good on young Kassian if he gets the message.

Here is an actual quote:
Right now Kassian is in Chicago for reasons, which on the surface, certainly puzzle the public. In fact, it’s largely disciplinary given he’s been photographed enjoying himself in some of the local nightspots when he’s supposed to have been nursing an ailing back. But the club doesn’t really want to say so. He’s young and inexperienced in this market — where everything you do is spotted, photographed and dutifully reported.

The Canucks don’t want to talk about it even though they simply want to point out to Kassian that it’s not a God-given right to play in the NHL and that you have to act more than professionally if you want to be part of this organization.

Have to agree. Guess I can't blame AV for this one. Solely on the back of the player.

Hopefully he learns something from this and it doesn't turn all septic. We've had enough of that in this organization.

How can a young player expect to develop under AV when this kind of treatment is meted out?

A young man being a young man...

Fuck, did I ever drink when I was 21....and I was broke, not making $900k. The temptations for the young man will be large to get himself into all kinds of late night trouble. Good on the organization for reminding him that he is a professional athlete living in a fishbowl.

Heard from a decent source he is a little like SOB in his prime. Time to sort it out, it isn't the 90's where i used to trip over Pavel, Gino, Valk, Antoski and Nedved at the Roxy.

Apparently Zack got photo'd while out being a party machine with the bad back and pic's got forwarded to the Canucks Organization. ROFLMAO! S.O.B. jr.

I remember back in the day when my old man owned a certain well known Vancouver establishment, ole Jake Milford put a ban on his players visiting certain establishment. The old man was crushed, they brought in a lot of good business. I almost like Kassian more now.
