That's because he looks like he's in his late 30's.

Kassian is probably at least 2 years away from being someone you can rely on in the top 6, but he's definately shown enough flashes to make me think he'll get there in time.

It's scary to think how tough he's going to be in 5 years. The only guys that will want to fight him are going to be the 230lb+ enforcers.

I just hope we get to see him and Iginla drop the gloves before all is said and done. Iginla's been a world class spot-picker up until this point by going after the Kesler, Ohlund, Burrows, Mitchell's etc. of the team and it would nice to see him fight someone in his class for once. For Iginla's sake, he better hope it doesn't happen 3 years from now.
