Also 5th in the league in PIMs. Is developing very nicely this year, he is practically untouchable now.
Yup I 100% agree! Hes developing and playing great.

Glad to hear he's doing well. I still wish he was with the Sabres although I also like Hodgson. It looks like the trade was a win for both teams.

I think that tortorella broke him down for the first 40 games and has been building him back up. You can see it's helped. He looks like he has an extra step. Hes good on the puck. He's been a bit better without it, but that's still an ongoing improvement.

Will he put up the point totals that cody will? No. Does he have the chance to be a fan favourite and our 40+ point 2nd line rw? Absolutely.

I'd still make that trade again. The only problem I had with it was the timing seeing as Cody was a bit more 'ready'

The Canuck have a ton of quality and depth on defense. Guys like Marincin, Klefbom and Nurse wouldn't get it done.

Goalscoring forwards are what the Canucks would be looking for. Perron, Eberle etc. would be of interest.

Kassian is really coming into his own, he looks great with Kesler, Canucks would be dumb to move him players like him are hard to find and we need what he brings.
