And no, tolch and Thomas have no correlation. If we offer tolch a deal its cause we think he can play inspite of his midget size. His skills are undeniable. Hes 5'7 and maybe 160, together both of those are the reason he was not drafted.

Christian Thomas, although smallish, has a world class shot. I mean, lazer beam good. Other than that, he's meh. He skates well enough and gets after it but his finish is what sets him apart.

We did that deal because Danny kristo is a better overall prospect vs Thomas. Period. Kristo was the most dynamic player in the ncaas last season. Kid has real legit dangerous skills.

Montreal wasn't happy he stayed for 4 yrs at no dak.
Really hoping Tolch impresses. If he gets pushed around in our camp, we won't sign him (and for good reason). Really hoping he can overcome the size, man.
