The twins were an effective top line with Pyatt and Kassian is way more talented. Truth be told, Kassian is more talented than Burrows too.

Yup. He's a good forechecker, he goes to the net, he can finish, he knows when to get out of the way and he can make a play when he gets it on his stick. All things I think Kassian can do too, plus he can score from outside of 5 feet. Kassian can also offer something to the twins they've never had, a player that can give them a little extra room to work.
