There's no reason to expect Kristo to be better than Gionta right away. He might never be, he sure as hell didn't have a better college career than Gionta.

Dominating the NCAA as a senior and dominating the NHL aren't the same thing at all.

Not that surpassing Gionta at his age is that out of the question, but we aren't buying Gionta out with Kaberle on the books. The only hope is to trade Gionta in the off season, and I wouldn't hold your breath there.

If Pacioretty is out for a more than a few games, I wouldn't mind seeing Kristo get a trial run, but Leblanc or even Dumont are more realistic. The last thing this team needs is another rookie forward.
