I hope the guy succeeds but it's not like the guy was bluechip. After all the positive things you read in here about Kristo, I wonder how long it's going to take before we start ripping on him when he doesn't play above expectations.

If Montreal gives him a chance to develop "at the right level" then we wil see.

You guys do realize he is going to develop into being a 2nd/3rd line two way speedy forward? a Higgins type player but with more grit and speed

It looks like he could end up being as good as Cammalleri or as bad as D'Agostini. Similar skillsets.

In 32 games this season, Kristo leads all WCHA rookies in points (27), points per game (0.84), goals (12), power-play goals (eight) and power-play points (18). He has garnered WCHA Rookie of the Week honours on 2 occasions this season.

The North Dakota Fighting Sioux wrap up their season tonight against Michigan Tech and start the 1st round of the WCHA playoffs next weekend.

At season's end, Kristo ended with 15 goals and 36 points in 41 games for the (formerly) Fighting Sioux.

Definetly has established himself as legitimate prospect.

i think hes on the money...he might as well go back and develop some more, no need to rush him...as long as he is developing nicely

I am really excited about this kid. Watching the WJC this year, he was one of those players you just stood on the edge of your seat when he got on the ice. He was fantastic. A real barn-burner who can flat fly.

Keep playing in USA. Play this season in Hamilton. Or make the team out of training camp. I think Kristo has a chance to make the team out of training camp. With a strong showing in training camp I would expect that Kristo will improve his game in Hamilton. Lots of speed and skill. Would Eller and Kristo help replace Pleks as they are both very skilled and fast?

With this said. I hope PG can re-sign Pleks this week. And then deal with the Kostitsyn situation, basically dump both brothers even though they have lots of talent they walk to their own drummer or cap situation surrounding Hammer or Markov. Both defencemen have huge contracts but only one year remaining so the buyout or trade might be smart to look at long term.

If we get rid of the Kostitsyn brothers then there could be room on the roster for Kristo. Maybe even need Kristo if both players are dumped this week.

Why would you think that Kristo is ready to play with NHL men. At best he might make the AHL this year. Let all slow down a little with the prospect. They need to evolve at the"right" speed and that means not rushing them. Have we not learned anything?
