Despite the fact that Kassian
ripped Konopka's helmet off
like he was opening a beer can...
'Poptarts' still couldn't muster
the intestinal fortitude he needed...
to edge an 'averagely-tough'... ''unidexter''.
Konopka is the NHL equivalent of Rocky Balboa before the first Apollo Creed fight--the consummate club fighter. Always game, he fights but really can't win with his toolset. I give Kassian the nod just for leading the dance.
Kassian is a huge kid and has the size to be an enforcer...
However, I feel his punching abilities are not congruent to his size.
He needs more 'authority' to his punch.
Slightest edge to Kassian on the body blows.
Can't believe people overwhelmingly give Kassian the nod. After throwing the first couple he started hugging. Hell, that's Zenon's M O. Looked like Konopka was trying to stretch out to swing. Draw!!!!! Neither took any.
