Former Sabre Kassian ready to face his old team


‘I asked Kassian if there was any bitterness. He stopped to think and then said, “No, hockey’s a business. If he feels that was the right move then so be it. I think I’m a young player and still have a lot to prove, I’m just looking forward to getting the opportunity. I definitely have something to prove to both the Sabres and Vancouver. I think as a young player in this league you have to make a name for yourself and me being traded away from Buffalo I obviously want to play well and to show them what I could’ve been. Vancouver has high hopes on me and I want to play well and show them they didn’t make a mistake.”’
