    I don't really think there is a question about that is there? Unless he is playing "the Kassian role" on one of the top 2 lines, he just doesn't have the innate skill for top-6 duty. Kassian actually looks to have the superior hands, by quite a bit in fact.

    He has a nice shot though. I think he can easily be a 3rd wheel. Depends where our team is at whether that’s preferable or is he a 3C? Either one is a great add.

    Those are definitely the weakest points of his game. I see a 40-50 point complimentary winger that can support a line defensively/physically and finish plays. Hands can be improved, and that'll have an impact on what his ceiling will be.

    The worry is that he something like Bellows, who was a "beast' at lower levels, but can't seem to translate those skills to the NHL. Bellows had a better shot and scoring ability, but couldn't skate like Holloway.

    A 40-50 point complimentary winger with good two way play would be a really good outcome.

    Holloway has a hell of a shot though, which means he could definitely be a top 6 player if his development goes well.

    Brian Bellows? Hell yes

    Also, Kieffer had 22 goals last season in the AHL

    Hopefully he goes at a PPG pace this season. I would call it a successful season.

    Savoie and Tullio have higher offensive potential but Holloway will be a career NHLer and is a much safer bet. We don't really need him to be carrying a top 2 line so his game is exactly what McDrai would need to compliment their skill.
