Throw in some intense playoff experience for the guy and he's gonna have one hell of a career. I think he can easily bag 40 points this year...
Completely agree with the bold section. Not only has he had 2-3+ quality scoring chances per game, but he can throw some serious passes. It kind of sucks there is only one of him because I think he could play the point or the half boards just as effectively as he does in front of the net.
Just love how he was down so low in the offensive zone but still managed to wire a perfect one timer pass all the way to Edler at the point.
I still don't expect Kassian to be this consistent this early, but the potential is extremely promising to see.
