What Will It Take For Kassian To Crack The Lineup?
Lindy Ruff has already said Zack Kassian is playing in preseason games, starting this Saturday at home against Toronto. But what is it going to take from Kassian to change Darcy Regier’s mind and earn that contract that was kiboshed when the bar incident happened, if Regier’s mind can be changed at all.
On Twitter, I speculated 3 goals, 2 fights, and no slacking off. He’ll need to have a positive rating and outplay, more than anyone else, Drew Stafford. After all, it’s Stafford who is built to play the same game but doesn’t. Lastly, no absurd, egregious penalties. If he gets a major that’s not a fighting at all, it’s back to Windsor right away.
Tell me in the comments section what Kassian would have to do to earn himself a 9-game tryout.
