There's no doubt, in my mind, that Kassian will become consistent in all aspects of his game as he gets older, it just takes time for powerforwards to adjust to the different rule book that they must abide to.
I think thats more a maturity issue than anything else...become less rambunctious and more controlled, less Downie and more Doan. Like you said, it will come with time, but I don't think he needs to minimize playing physical and just work on offense. IMO he needs to work on blending it all together in a consistent manner.
