I'm not sold on him, although admittedly I didn't watch a ton of Flyers games last year. More importantly though, our GM has specifically stated he wanted to get bigger - and then went out and picked up Kassian to prove it. He doesn't really fit our team needs.

edit : And he was averaging 17:04 in ice time which was 12th among the skaters and averaged 2:31 of shorthanded time on ice. It's not he's some scrub being carried by his linemates
