Is the Kassian kid much better than Beach and if so in what ways ? I mean if I played with the twins I could pick up some points too. I saw the Hogs vs the Wolves and Kassian is an active player and certainly has skill, but I don't think he has Beaches shot/release. I know they "fought" once, but it was more a hug fest ...
He seems to me kind of like a meaner Troy Brouwer.
Enough skill to be able to serve as a 3rd wheel with two excellent players, but not much when he's outside of that situation.
The strategy for this game is the same as always against the Canucks. Shut down the Sedins and you'll probably win. Especially now without their best secondary scorers. Lu will try to stand on his head, but as has been shown many times, there's only so much Lu can do on his own.
