Buffalo badly wanted to add size to their top 6 (to their lineup in general) so they drafted Kassian 13th overall in 2009. He spent 2 more years in junior, then split the following year between the AHL and NHL before being traded for an average sized centerman who has no power game to speak of. 4 years later, Kassian is starting to show that he can be an asset on an NHL club. I don't know about you, but I'm not interested in waiting 4 years to fill that need on this club.
we need both IMO, we need that guy right now and we need the guy that in 4 years can take the spot of the guy we have now. Any PF on this team will get inflated stats playing with the talent we have here, when they hit UFA we need to be able to replace them effectivly
