Count me as someone who actually thought that Kassian really did not add much of value to the game.

If he'd been playing for Montreal, he would have been one more player that was involved in the fracas and booted out of the game. That's about it.

During actual play, he's too slow to make much of an impact because he can't hit. We had the same issue with McGrattan. He's scary, but only if his opponent is standing still.

Ottawa won the game, so it looks like a genius move, but consider that he was inserted into the line-up for Game 2 and after that loss, people were questioning MacLean's decision.

The end result often makes any decision seemingly a positive one, irrespective of the actual impact on the game.

The guys I like are the physical guys who can play a regular shift (Neil, Smith, Moen, Prust) as opposed to a heavyweight.
