I've seen him make many a vet defenceman look foolish or weak. But Kassian is a better skater, better shot, hits more, fights, still has top 6 forward potential. Harti just doesn't have the skating to be more than a grinding 3/4th liner. Maybe a Holmstrom if he learns to screen and deflect pucks better.
Agreed. I would love Kassian. I have a feeling, so would Gorton (who drafted Lucic in BOS and McIlrath in NY)
