No one said keep him at all costs, but comparing him to McDonagh, if you remember there was the same overreaction around here when McDonagh wanted to return to Wisconsin and posters were up in arms saying he should be traded and now look at him. So my example fits well as both were very good in the NCAA and both times fans here overreacted (shocking I know).

Kristo would be unlikely to be a 3rd liner, he's all about the offense. He was one of the top forwards in the NCAA this year and easily has 2nd line upside imo.

He should likely be a top 6 forward at some point, his speed and hands are his best assets. He needs to be more consistent and get stronger but when he turns it out look out as he can dominate when he wants to.

agreed 100%
