Until now most Nucks have been unable to park in front of the net like that, because it is just too hard on the body to be stomped around... but it seems like people aren't so quick to get rough with ol Kassian. Funny about that.
He does park himself in front of the net but what hes also doing is not just staying there. He moving getting into open positions and also giving his linemates options for passes (behind the net, in the corner etc).
