I've seen him put to the wing more than 6 or 7 games.

Wait wait, is ZK a center or winger? He's played wing much more correct?

When you guys talk about Kassian's board play, it reminds me of a play from the 2010 memorial cup. Kassian's Spitfires were playing Calgary, and he had the puck along the boards for 30 straight seconds on the game clock. He fought off two players at times, working it back and forth along the boards before finally setting up Kenny Ryan for a goal at the side of the net. It was almost comical watching the Calgary defencemen trying to take the puck from him. His work along the boards is easily his greatest asset. His combination of coordination and strength is quite rare. The kid is the real deal, glad to see him doing well with Buffalo.

Kassian and McNabb have given this team a type of grit that they have not had since the lockout. I love how strong Kassian is with the puck in the offensive zone. He can have control untill he sees a good pass or draws a penalty.

Some may think this comparison is over the top, but I find Kassian's board work to be strikingly similar to Jaromir Jagr's. He has that ability to not only maintain possession of the puck but create space to make a play.

I was thinking the same exact thing when I was watching him yesterday. Obviously there is a difference in skill, but in the way they are able to protect the puck there are certainly a lot of similarities.

They are tall guys with huge butts. When they face the boards and stick their butt out it's like trying to get around a bus.

Kassian has been a real pleasure to watch so far this season. I hope he can keep it up.
