Honestly I think Kassian would be a good pickup for us. He doesn't have to play every game, but what happened against Toronto is going to happen against other teams. This isn't a wimpy group like it was last year...Everyone was ready and willing to drop against Toronto (except Moen and Armstrong, it seemed). But they just aren't a fighting group. Gallagher and Gorges cannot be dropping against guys 5+ inches taller and 40 lbs heavier.
If we don't pick up Kassian, an already tough team will and it will make it that much tougher to play them. Boston needs a new heavy with Thornton out, I bet they make a claim.
I can totally see it...We pass, and a team that already has a bunch of tough guys will claim Kassian and everyone will groan because they know it's going to be hell to play them.
I mean seriously guys...There's no way that Toronto plug should have been allowed to play carefree the rest of the game after dropping Gallagher. That cannot happen ever again. Prust is great and will fight anyone but he isn't going to win every fight.
