Totally disagree with Kristo being ahead of Nieves and Skjei. He's 23 and hasn't sniffed the NHL.

If you aren't at least a borderline NHLer at this age, you will likely never make it.
You guys do realize that Kristo only just graduated from college this year, right? It's not like he's been toiling away in the minors and hasn't been good enough to crack the NHL; he stayed all four years at NoDak and put up increasing point totals each year, culminating with 52 in 40 games this past season (which was good enough to tie for second in all of DI college hockey).

I am a huge fan of Nieves, but it is not at all ridiculous that Kristo is ranked where he is. He is a damn fine prospect.
