Really one of those trades where I'm just going to have to wait and see. Kristo has played less professional hockey then Thomas, so one of the few posts I read that said he's more NHL ready might not be completely correct.
Well, Kristo is older. He played 4 years at UND. He's also bigger than Thomas. Both of those probably factor into the idea that he's closer to being ready.

As far as the selfishness goes, posters who watched him at UND said that he improved a lot in that area. He can't be worse than No-Pass-Nash
