Big kid (6'4") that has some of the most crisp skating you'll see for a guy that size. Excellent passing skills. Underrated shot. Despres and Myers would be the #1 pairing on the PP the next 10 years for Buffalo. I definitely think he will score 50+ points a year in the NHL in his prime.

Kassian is a mean winger that is built in the mold of Rick Tocchet (hopefully without the gambling)
Kassian gives the Pens a legit top prospect at RW. Kassian probably has 20-25 goal upside in him at the NHL level but it's hard to say at this point. He's a bull that plays off his rocker once in a while.
I'm guessing but i bet it will take more then Despres to land Kassian.
