It's very rare that collegiate players become top NHL scorers if they're not already tearing it up by their sophomore year. He could turn out to be a nice player, but I just don't think Kreider has the scoring touch to be an elite scoring forward in the NHL.

Thomas, on the other hand, has outstanding stats as an 18 year old in the OHL. Just as importantly, he has continued to improve, which is what you look for in a junior player. Though his dad was a very good player in his day, Christian reminds me even more of Joey Mullen.

I'd trade Kreider before I'd trade Thomas.
As much as I am a big fan of Thomas, I would think Kreider has the potential to be a better NHL player than Thomas.

I would trade Thomas before I trade Kreider.
