Loving the lack of off the board, high risk picks.

I'm so upset, lodge at 85 would've been amazing.

i wanted Subban hes small but i have a good feeling about him

David71 06-30-2013 07:06 PM

Sorry who?

Would have taken Subban here, liked his offensive upside from the back end.

Seems like a two-way guy with a bit of grit. Skating issues.

Should get a huge boost in icetime next year, will see what happens. Our OHL scouts have been pretty good so will give this one the benefit of the doubt.

don't judge before you watch him..........could be steal later on

how many 2 ways centers we gonna draft?

PRNuck 06-30-2013 07:07 PM

Awesome legacy pick :) I've read that he plays a similar game to his dad but with more grit. Reloading the franchise depth at centre, nice move.

GranvilleIsland 06-30-2013 07:08 PM

Frank Corrado didn't look like much when we drafted him. I'll reserve my judgements.

Tim Calhoun 06-30-2013 07:08 PM

Pretty weird that his birthplace (on hockeydb) is Columbus. Andrew didn't play for the Jackets until 7 years after his son was born. One would think he'd be born in Connecticut or in Ontario.

Cole Cassels (C, 2013), Oshawa – clever two-way pivot who displays good vision .. thinks ahead – anticipates plays before they happen .. particularly effective distributing the puck from the neutral zone .. executes accurate and crisp passes – both forehand and backhand – and requires minimal time and space – can make it look effortless .. propelled by a looping skating style and moderate first-step quickness .. could add power to his stride – straight-ahead speed is average at best, however these areas should improve with physical maturity and added leg strength .. defensive instincts are sound which earns him time on the penalty-killing unit .. shows no fear blocking shots or sacrificing his body .. can excel neutralizing opponents along the boards with solid hits and checks, yet isn’t overly large or powerful at six-foot and 180 pounds .. must guard against letdowns however as he can become static in his own end at times .. must continue to refine his faceoff technique – clearly falls behind on draws .. needs to be encouraged to be more selfish about exploiting shooting opportunities as he too often tends to operate in ‘pass-first’ mode .. should benefit from a more sheltered role playing behind Boone Jenner and Scott Laughton – and not having to face top-line opponents every night.

Looked it up and he is indeed the son of former Canuck Andrew cassels

Hopefully he turns out like his dad! Anyone know where he was projected to go?

ZKass The Bass 06-30-2013 07:09 PM

Slepyshev???

Bitz and Bites 06-30-2013 07:10 PM

Glad we did'nt draft Subban,if he had a different last name 99% of the posters on here would have never heard of him.

I liked Andrew Cassels as a Canuck but Cole's game sounds much grittier,sort of like a slightly less physical version of Mallet.I'm glad to see more OHL picks in the middle rounds instead of those off the board picks from the Q that seem to go nowhere.

Bubbles 06-30-2013 07:10 PM

Damn I'm getting old. I still remember Cassels centering out top line.

Plus he was born on May 4th.

So the 4th is with him.



Hey... I wonder if Geoff Sanderson has a kid?

Imuzi 06-30-2013 07:11 PM

If he's half the player his dad was I'll be alright with this pick.

Brings back some memories of those 98-02 years

parabola 06-30-2013 07:19 PM

I'm old.

Hyack57 06-30-2013 07:19 PM

Does Linden have any kids? What about Greg Adams or Martin Gelinas?

CCF 06-30-2013 07:22 PM

Andrew Cassels is one of my favourite Canucks of all time - so excited to have the next generation in the organization as well.

NuxFan09 06-30-2013 07:23 PM

Another two way center. Are the Canucks planning on fixing their scoring woes any time soon?
