Who to Start Message Board
I love Kassian with the Sedins and think he is going to do great but I don't know if it's the best move just yet, I'm sure you can wait it out and see if he keeps performing because I don't think you will have to worry about anyone snagging him just yet, odds are slim.
Big gamble,,, big.
I am in Vancouver and can't recommend the risk just yet. He might hit you a home run or flailing single or double
Very hard to imagine he will match Simmons numbers over season. Can you?
Playing with Sedins is only an experiment by AV . You and I could hit 20-30 goals playing with them as long as we have our stick on the ice near the net.
Once Kesler and Booth are back he will be probably be back on 3rd line and very little PP time if any and Burrows will back with Sedins.
Might even go down further to 4th line if Lou gets traded and they bring another C or W
Don't do it,,, flag him and be patient for 2-3-4 weeks.

That's certainly true, all the AHLers that went on first line last year got points because of the Sedins. I feel like his play right now at least merits second line even with Kes and Booth back.
I can imagine:
The PP time will be dictated by what he does in the next few games.
What HABS says about Canucks bringing in a C or W is very true. I don't think he'll go all the way down to 4th line though. Insider news says the potential trade isn't anyone that we know of yet...what I'm predicting is some 2nd-3rd line C to fill in the void for Kes, a A- tier forward prospect & a 3rd round draft pick. It doesn't make sense for Canucks to get a C; the reason we traded Hodgson was because we had too much talent there. Not to mention we already have Schroeder & Jensen in the makings. Definitely not D, too many prospects there.
The goalie situation is disconcerting. Schenids will need time off. Lack is injured. Does that mean our backup is Climie?
I'm not saying anymore that the better idea is Kaassian but if you want him, do it now. Don't wait till later because like HABS said, his value and playing time will probably deteriorate once starters are back and trade is made.
I would do it. Kassian has more upside and is getting 1st line PP time now with the Sedins. Canucks' best player right now (I'm a fan so I've watched all games so far).
Simmonds is better for PIM, that's about it I think.
