At best Kristo projects to produce at the level that Glencross is currently playing at. Suggesting he is a more valuable asset at this point in time is nothing short of laughable.

He has nine nhl games under his belt, and does not project as a top line forward, yet he is a more valuable asset than a proven top six goalscorer in the prime of his career signed to a sweetheart deal?
