On pure talent Kristo is a better prospect than Christian Thomas. Thatís not to say Thomas is a poor prospect as he has character, offensive ability and he could be an average to above-average pro. However Kristo is arguably a top 100 drafted prospect in hockey with significant upside even if he does carry more risk than Thomas. In a one for one deal, itís hard to make a perfectly equal trade and one team usually comes out ahead. In my opinion it was the Rangers.
