For Kassian to come in and score the way he did shows that he's very capable of playing at that level and that he doesn't need a lot more seasoning to make it to the next level.
I don't see how you don't come to that conclusion?
To be fair to Kesler, he was even younger - but he still ended up getting brought up to the NHL.
