Clear win Staubitz. Maybe a TKO
It feel so good to have him in the line-up :handclap:

Staubitz clear victory.
Kass didn't look out of place though. Give him a few seasons and I think a fight like that could go the other way.

Decent scrap. I laughed at Kassian's facial expression while skating to the box.

Kassian is only 21, no surprise in the clear loss there. Kid is gonna be a beast in a few years and be able to easily handle guys like Staubitz once he gets some experience under his belt, by the looks of things.

but I enjoyed that fight

Experience takes this one. Kassian throws without defending, keep your chin down kid.

Staubitz picked him apart when the fight swung in his momentum. That's just clear experience over the rookie. Kassian will get better though.

Staubitz, clearly. Good for Staubitz to accept the fight in the oppositions rink when the poor guy was denied all the time during home games in Minnesota.
Kassian is going to be a beast! Might take a few beatings on behalf of Burrows and Lapierre until he gains some experience but i can see him becoming dominant in a policing role at the very least and he still has potential to chip in some offense. Hate the Canucks but this was a really good pick-up by them for the fact he fills a pretty big hole.

Clear win Staubitz. Good showing up by Kassian considering the pretty good gap in experience.

Kassian has an entertaining fighting style, it may lead to him getting tagged but he likes to trade punches. Staubitz is and under rated fighter who can throw with both hands. Nice to see him and White in the line up for the Habs. Staubitz gets the clear win in that scrap.
Also is it just me or does Staubitz look bigger than what he's listed at, most sites including nhl.com have him listed at 6'1 215, but he looked around the same size as Kassian and earlier in the season when he scrapped Hordichuk who is listed as the same size Staubitz looked taller

Nah Stauby is 6'1. Probably closer to 225.

Had Staubitz lost this fight, it may have been his last in the NHL. Obviously I'm exaggerating but there is no way he loses this fight.
