Thomas has higher upside but sounds like Kristo is more complete and a better fit for our bottom 2 lines where we can see his strengths play out more. More likely to make the team at this point. meh. Good to know the Habs fans are upset but they should know they got themselves a prospect with a very high upside.
I don't see this. Kristo is a dangerous offensive player. I think the only reason the Habs made this deal is that Kristo wanted out. I cannot from a value perspective see the Canadiens perspective on this one. Kristo is the better player with the better upside.
