Kassian will have a Taylor Pyatt type career. Loads of potential, not even remotely enough hockey IQ to put it all together. Kassian's DNA has too much derp to be successful.

I like how people keep bringing up age, yeah he's 22, but that doesn't mean he can or will put it all together. He's his own worst enemy. You want to hope for the best for good people, but good god, are people seriously that clueless when it comes to this kid?

Charged with assault, intent to injure, 20 game suspension...all before the NHL. Then he fails to live up to any potential he has, is given opportunities to succeed but he still doesn't "get it" that he needs to smarten up.

Forget his potential, he has a lot of baggage that comes with him, people that whine about "Why would any one employ Matt Cooke" and then turn around and like this kid...pot meet kettle.
Not comparable at all.

You're projecting a lot onto a young guy who has yet to play out a couple of seasons, let alone his whole career.
