I love the kid and think that it will be a big mistake if we happen to move him. And I just have no doubt that he'll shine right from the start in the AHL.
IMO untouchable is a little extreme, but you have watched him more than I have so to each their own...but to me he's a top 5 prospect at best. I think it would be foolish to move him now, but him and Collberg are pretty interchangable at this point...Kristo is just much closer to the NHL. Neither of them are going to be a star I think, but this team can use all the skill it can get. I know we need size and all that, but we desperately need skilled wingers too.

Don't forget he shouldn't be playing in the NCAA this year to begin with. He was ready for the AHL by the end of last year.
