Another thing Kassian does well is use a strong base -- probably aided by all the work he did last summer. He's not the biggest power forward at this point in his career, but he plants his feet widely and has very good balance. Watch the way he uses his body to shield the puck. He even does it 5-7 feet before he gets to a puck along the boards to stop the defender from catching him off balance.

That part of his game reminds me a bit of Joe Thornton.
