Zack Kassian, who was a healthy scratch on Friday, would not be bothered by a trade.

Trade rumors have been bandied about and Kassian has obviously heard them. "I am at the point now if it happens, it happens," Kassian said. "It means another team wants you and maybe you get a little more opportunity. I am a Vancouver Canuck, I love it here and especially the guys here, so I am not thinking too much about that stuff." Kassian has five points and 30 penalty minutes in 22 games this season.

Zack Kassian, Yannick Weber, and Frank Corrado are expected to be healthy scratches Friday night against Carolina.

It'll be Kassian's second straight healthy benching as his name enters the trade rumor mill. Through 22 games the 23 year old winger has just five points, 30 PIMs, and 42 hits this season. As much as Kassian's been a disappointment, Weber and Corrado are simply lacking in fantasy value.

The former first round pick in 2009 has been a bit of a disappointment in his career so far. The rugged winger plays with an edge, but the offensive part of his game hasn't developed. The 23-year-old has two goals and five points in 22 games this season.

Zack Kassian is now 100% healthy but will not be in the lineup for the Canucks Thursday versus the Kings.

Kassian has fully recovered from his finger injury but won't crack the Canucks lineup in his first game being healthy. He is obviously unhappy about Coach Willie Desjardins' decision and was quoted as saying: "When I get my chance, I'm not coming out, I'll tell you that." Kassian has two goals, three assists, and a minus five rating in 17 games played. Time will tell if he gets his chance to stick in the lineup going forward, but he won't get a shot Wednesday.
