Kassian's 24 goals this season matches Kaleta's career high in the OHL. And Kaleta's career high in points with the Pete's was 52.

Yeah, Kaleta is a great comparison to Kassian when it comes to offense.......
Maybe I worded my posts wrong but I don't feel they were that hard to understand.

Kassian is obviously much more talented than Kaleta. What I meant is that their point totals translating to the NHL may not be that far off because Kaleta is extremely fast and that can translate to an NHL game no matter how untalented you are.

You also assume Kassian is going to put up more points next year.
