- Would have liked to see him drive the net more and win more puck battles.

- Seemed to float at times, not winning enough battles for pucks on the boards.

- Seemed to shoot every chance he got.. that can be a good thing but there were poor decisions tonight.

Hopefully for Kristo its just one bad game, Habs really need him to be a good forward prospect for them.

MacMillan looked the better of the two tonight... the pass was a beaut, he won a ton of faceoffs, and his hockey IQ is very high. Still needs to get stronger though.
Great analysis. And since Montreal has seen most of the games, I'm sure he will tell you that it was just one game. He was floating and seemed not interested tonight. And his coach is praising him for his overall game so clearly, we didn't see the real Kristo yesterday. Don't worry. He will be ready in due time. For NotsoBigMac....that's all there is to him. 3-4 years in the NCAA so the guy could become much much stronger. But he's a player.
