OTTAWA - Scariest have to be the behemoths who are smiling when they're beating on somebody.

You get the feeling Matt Kassian is that type of guy -- even if he's just grinning on the inside.

The 6-foot-4, 232-pound winger was clearly thrilled to be at Scotiabank Place as a Senator Thursday -- even though it meant he had to leave his favourite poolside book-reading spot in Houston, where it was 25C, and now has to buy himself a winter coat.
