1) Freshman year, shortly after being drafted, he was arrested for underage drinking.
No big surprise for a college kid to drink, underage or not.

2) They tried to sign him before senior year and he refused to, wanting to go back for a chance at the national title. Understandable, but I am sure Montreal is getting cranky now.

3) Senior year he ran hockey party on campus and sold to underage minors... Well, like I said. Life of a college kid. I am sure most college athletes do it... he got caught.

In the end, they prob thought he would be a problem case one way or another. Off ice issues even if its minor, drinking too much and not focused, wants to much money for what hes really worth. I think he is actually like 1.3 or 1.6 million a year. So ehhh, thats a lot for a guy who can be even a slight risk

They probably said, lets get him out and start over with our prospects. And a solid prospect they got. Mature hard working Thomas, who might very well be a solid NHL player. Kristo though, can be a superstar like McDonagh, Krug, Stepan...

I am glad for the trade though he will need to prove to me if hes focused for the big leagues
