    I get a kick how most including Tippett sees Kassian getting a shot on McWing .. yet the alternative a lot of local media have put out there is forth line.. which absolutely amazes me. Guys like Archibald barely have a full season broken up over several years. Do they forget Kass was drafted 13th over all and was projected to be exactly what he was in the second half of last season ?? Big, Fast, hits, fights, shoots and scores ., on pace for 28 goals over 82 games in the second half eating mostly top 6 mins., don’t get me wrong.. do I 110% bet my paycheck that Zacks going to do that for 82 games ?? I’d rather bet your money.. but I’d bet on Kass before a lot of guys. The one thing I do think is Kass earned the right to have the first shot there.. if not what he done in the Playoffs with McD 3 years ago, then absolutely for what he done in the second half of last season.. the answer was right there since the end of the playoffs and it took Hitchcock to recognize it “Again”.. Maybe he watched video of the playoffs 3 years ago ?? 😂 or just looked at the skill set Kass possess. He can do everything Pat Maroon can do only faster.,too many local media guys still drinking the Todd Mclellen Cool aid still !
