Levitate- Good points.

I need to see more of Kristo, but he seems to me to be more of a goto scorer than puck possession player if you get what mean. He plays a game to controll the game. Slows it down, goes to open ice, etc. Actually kind of reminds me a bit of Naslund. In the NHL, most of the plays he make have to be to just keep the puck within the team. Diffrent purpose and diffrent plays. I do think that adjustment is much bigger than day OLs or Fasts adjustments.

On Yogan, I also think he could play. But Pyatt can play for 1.5m per. A Powe can play for what, 800k per. Sometime you have one spot and want a goon. Or a PK specialist. Or someone who is great on FOs. Or whatever. Leadership.

It's a numbers game too. If Yogan can become as good as Dubinsky or Anisimov or someone like that he will play. But if you are good enough to play on a 4th line, the numbers game is tough.
