Somebody in the Vogl chat suggested they recall Tropp to have him recreate his incident with Kampfer a couple years ago. I approve!

Yep.

This organization wants to be like Detroit--a perrenial powerhouse with "model" standing in the league. And one of the key factors of the Detroit developmental model is patience with young players and letting them fully develop in the AHL. There's no need to rush Kassian, let him continue to develop for now.

Most annoying statement ever IMO is "he isn't ready".

Like anyone knows when a player is ready.

And by that measuring stick, no one should ever suggest a player from Rochester, play in Buffalo.

The coaching staff on both teams DO KNOW when a player looks ready to attempt a productive call up. If Kassian was so damn ready he would of been up here already. Obviously he's not.

I want to see Kassian but I expect to see Tropp. I could see Derek Whitmore getting the call, though. I don't think there's any chance it's Foligno.

I'm sorry but what's wrong with Cody's game? He's been kicking ass every time he drops the gloves, and he isn't a giant liability on the ice..

Ready for what though? 16 minutes on a top 6 line? No. They wouldnt be asking much from him.

Tropp played great in his last call up, I don't know why they would even consider anyone else. If we need a winger, Tropp is the guy.

Ah ok, I should take the time to read the whole thread.

If it's McCormick coming out, I'd prefer Kassian in there, anyone else I'd prefer Foligno or Tropp.

If it's 4th line minutes, replacing Cody in the Lineup, hell yeah I'd like to see Zack run through someone.
Especially after this weekend's circus.

My thoughts exactly. After the Bruins incident I could see teams trying to take liberties with the boys and Kassian is the guy to make the statement that it won't be tolerated.

I dont know about all that, but I would like to see if he is a taller, stronger version of Kaleta.

no he isn't, he is a 20 year prospect that they are trying to develop into a top notch player not an enforcer. Tropp can handle himself.

The guy to make the statement are the following players:

Goose
Pominville
Meyers
Roy
Stafford
Regehr
Weber
McCormick

Kassian is taller, stronger, tougher and more importantly a MUCH better player than Kaleta...Tropp is a comparable player to Kaleta.

Maybe the thread title should change to reference the flu.

You and I have no clue, no clue whatsoever if Kassian will be "the guy" to show that running Miller won't be tolerated. It's only hope. Not factual.

Kassian is the only player in our org. Who can match up with Lucic... Yet everyone thinks because he isn't out there knocking people out that he "lost" it, no its more like he doesn't want to be suspended again for the 3rd time.

Kassian can flat out throw down with just about anyone in his weight class. For his age he more than holds his own and I think it would be a great scrap between him and Lucic. With that said I expect Tropp in the lineup until Cody is better. As long as Cody is back for the 21st I could care less

If you're looking for an imposing physical presence, Sabre fans may be disappointed if Kassian gets the call. His body of work in Rochester thus far has shown a more toned down Kassian, more focused on offense than the gritty side of his game.

Who knows though, perhaps Darcy and Rolston wanted him rein it in and work on the offense. Maybe if given the green light he'll go on a rampage.

TBH, unless it's an absolute dire emergency I wouldn't touch Kassian at all this year. Let him continue to develop his offensive game and maybe he makes the big squad next year.
