Danny Kristo Connundrum

With the college season winding down the habs have a potentially large decision to make with Danny Kristo.

They can sign him to a current or future deal that starts next season.

If they sign him to a current deal they can assign him to Hamilton and call him up if needed for a playoff run.

If they sign him to a future deal they can sign him to Hamilton for the rest of their season, but that's it.

Given his age he is going to sign a 2 year deal which will expire in 2014 or 2015 depending on which they choose.

IMO if North Dakota has an early exit from the playoffs I would sign him to a current deal, have him play the end of the season in Hamilton then call him up for whatever is left of the NHL year. He could end up being useful like Kreider was for the Rangers last year.
