If Kovalev was not a character, I do not understand the English definition of character

I just hope we did not make a mistake in trading Kristo away because he had a bad attitude....
It's not just attitude. It's that he arrived in the AHL and showed big problems adjusting to the league in, admittedly only, nine games.

Thomas is younger yet had a 19 goal season, which is Eller-esque.

If Thomas takes one more year to make it to the bigs, say in 2014-15, he will have five years with us before he hits UFA status.

If Kristo takes two years to make it to the bigs, he will have only 2 years left before UFA status.

I don't think this trade was very much about attitude, or at least not only so.
