I'd call it a draw. A ton of swinging on both sides - Kassian grazed three and Stewart two that if any of them had hit, probably would have been devastating. But nothing really seemed to land.

EDIT: Kassian not on the Canuck bench at the moment though; possible that he did get tagged, although it's also possible that it's his back flaring up again. (he missed the last two games with lower back issues)

I'd say draw. Man if Kassian can learn how to get that arm freed up and land with those caveman haymakers...look out.

I can't wait until this guy matures a bit more.

I don't think I saw either guy land a single clean punch. Just a lot of spinning around.

I give the edge to Stewart here not by much though. I will say that Kassian is the scariest player in the league. In a few years it seems like he could really begin to hurt somebody...hes like a poor mans Lindros in his prime to me honestly.

Judging by your response, I don't believe you've met Steve Bennett yet?

Kassian could have got knocked out, taken out on a stretcher, hockey carrer ended by major concussion, and Bennett would be raving about how Kass "owned" Stewart.

You can see the fighting potential in Kass. Once he calms his adrenaline rush/matures a little, he will be unstoppable. Can't wait until next year: Van vs Bos, Kass vs Lucic.

As for this fight, I would say it's a draw. To close for me to agree with other posters that Stewart won.

Kassian is almost there. His strength is just a bit short in a lot of these fights. When he's in his prime around 25-29 he's going to be destroying in fights like these.

Kass has the potential, but as the poster above mentioned, I think his adrenaline surge causes him to flail away a little to wildly, and I'd even say affects his balance a little.

He needs to calm things down a bit and be more calculating; he's a big kid with the ability to throw with both hands, and fearless. But there is no tact to his fights at all yet. Just swings away wildly.
That worked a lot better in junior where he was more physically mature and could dominate on pure skill.

That fight was a draw, and entertaining, but now much of anything seemed to land.

Fighting while nursing a bad back is not a good idea for Kass.

I don't get why people think that Kassian looks so devastating. Anyone big can throw haymakers and look stupid while they're not landing.

Stewart won that fight.

Agreed. He's going to be a beast. Those were some heavy punches he was throwing.

Kassian looks like a mad dog when he fights. Aside from him dropping Sestito while he was with Buffalo you can't really say he's been anymore than an average fighter in the NHL, but he's got the crazy and the anger in him that all the best fighters have had.

That was a heck of a fight, smart fight for both guys, got everyone fired up. I say it's a spirited draw, lots of big swings but nothing really connected clean.

He throws bombs but he also leaves himself wide open. He fights a guy like Orr, McGrattan or McLaren with that kind of recklessness he will be pretty likely to get dropped.
