Any chance for Kristo's performance to boost him into the Habs line up end of this season/next?
Shroeder might end up being an offensive threat, but Leblanc is on the pace to end up being a solid all-around player. Considering what Montreal has, Leblanc was the guy to pick... and if not available, then Kreider would have also been picked before Shroeder IMO just because of what this team needs.

And there was more than Montreal which passed over Shroeder. Two other centermen were picked after Leblanc and before Shroeder: Kreider and Josefson.

Oh man number 17 is Kristo ? I was just about to say how brutal he did in that one pk. By brutal, I mean how he just went where ever he wanted to.

I was wondering. I could not find a roster for the game, and I could not remember how many games he had played to that point.

Did you not see Trevor Timmins list that was shown on RDS and on this board? Schroeder was ahead of Kreider. TT had two columns...Column 1 were the guys he really wanted (1-14) and Column 2 were guys that were "acceptable" (15-18). Schroeder was in Column 1 at #13 and Kreider was in Column 2 at #17. Habs would have taken Schroeder ahead of Kreider.

Does anybody remember the exact order of both lists?

More Praise for Kristo from US WJ Coach.

http://www.nhl.com/ice/news.htm?id=479865

Blais said one player who surprised him with his play was forward Danny Kristo, who had a team-best 3 goals while playing in three games against Russia.

"He's a good hockey player, but in the (intrasquad) games and against Russia, he was a scoring machine," Blais said. "He was very surprising. ... I think he had a real good summer and conditioned himself and was really ready to go."

That's the thing I like the most about Kristo...he wants to become a NHL player and he knows he has to work to get there. He'll do what it takes to reach his goal. We'll see how good he'll be, but in my mind, there's no doubt he'll play for us.

I agree. I think the Habs farm system, as far as forwards are concerned, has a very St. Louis Blues type feel to it. Though not as deep in top end talent, guys like Pacioretty, Kristo, Leblanc, Nattinen, Avtsin...even Trunev and D'Agostini to a certain extent, all seem to have pretty bright futures in Pro Hockey. We have a solid mix of 2-way type guys (I see that in Patches, Leblanc and Nattinen...who I haven't seen play so I'm going on what I've heard) and gamebreaking skill guys (Kristo, Avtsin, Trunev). I like our blend and think that if even half of these guys keep progressing the way they have, we'll be in good shape with young cheap talent filling out our roster.

As to why I see it as similar to the Blues: The Blues' offensive cupboard is stocked with tons of gritty 2-way guys like Backes, Oshie, Crombeen (more defensive) etc...but they also have guys like Berglund, Perron, Eller and Palushaj who can break a game wide open with their skill. More than anything they have a great blend of grit and skill that hopefully, if all plays out the right way, the Habs will be able to boast as well.

Interesting, so USA is going to copy Canada now and for the first time they will hold 2 camps for the WJC's. In the past it has been just the summer camp, but now they will hold a camp on the 15th of decemeber. Hope Cichy rips it up at ND with Kristo and gets another invite to camp then. Seems like a good move by USA to go to 2 camps, seems to work out well for Canada.

I'm a little stunned to see Ellis and Kassian that soon while Moore, Kulikov, Kadri and Josefsson are that high. I said little 'cause we all know how Timmins likes his d-men, making the Ellis pick pretty easy, but John Moore, definately, looks to me like Timmins right kinda pick.

Good article by Mathias.

Al Murray compares him to Bryan Trottier.
