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
To add to that, the Sedins being the playmakers they are will give Kassian plenty of opportunities to get on the board. So even when Kassian is slumping, confidence may not be a problem because he'll still be collecting points.
