Thomas was never going to make it with this team, since he's got a top 6 skillset but not top 6 ability. Kristo can fit into a 3rd line role. He'll start with Hartford but I wouldn't be surprised at all to see him play at least a game or two with the Rangers this season.
That to me is the most significant part of this trade, rangers are lacking guys who fit into the bottom 6. They have a lot of potential top 6 guys, but few bottom 6
