Furthermore, the twins' style of play - the cycling, boardwork, and physical punishment they take on a game to game basis - lends itself perfectly to keeping Kassian in the game and alert at all times. This means that their style of play wil hopefully enhance his Kass' strengths and not just the other way around
i agree with this and it really might soften any inconsistent patches that kassian is likely to go through. this way if he's not scoring or being physical, the least he can do is just hold the puck down low and try to cycle with the sedins.
