We had this whole discussion on this in another Kristo thread in the summer I think.

The jist is that the loop hole was at the end of the 3rd year because he played an extra year at high school level or something like that. I can't remember the exact detail. So he would've had to say to the NHL and the Habs that he quits University and will go the FA way. But as soon as he started the fourth year of University, the loophole closed.

Baby steps though. Interested to see how he would perform in the AHL.
I think he might be phenomenal. Speed, hands, aggression. Kristo could make the Habs next year. Kristo and Gallagher as wingers, by jeezus. That could be something. Nuclear energy.

There are no more baby steps, and Habs know it. 22 year olds rule in this NHL. New game. Young game. Kristo could make it next year.

Kristo is not nhl ready. He's coming to a game which is much faster, tougher, stronger then what he is used to. He needs a year in Hamilton at least.

I'm a fan of a rival team, but I saw this thread while browsing and knew what it'd be about.

AFAIK, the option for college players to choose between a current season contract and a future contract exists, but it no longer has any leverage:
Quote:
One positive for college coaches that may help if only a little is that players can no longer burn a year off of their entry-level contract by signing at the end of their college campaign to get in a few games at the NHL level.

For example, J.T. Brown signed with Tampa Bay after his sophomore season at Minnesota Duluth last year. He appeared in just five games for the Lightning at the end of the last season which counted as a full year on his contract, leaving just one year remaining on his entry-level deal. So he’ll get to restricted free agency a year sooner. That will no longer be the case.

Players may still join NHL teams late, receive signing bonuses and play, but that short stint will not count as a full year on an entry-level contract, according to the summary.

Burning a year was a key incentive for some players, particularly college free agents to leave school quickly after their college season ended to burn that year. Taking that option away could slow that players’ decision process down as the only incentive to get those few games in at the tail end of the season is the money from his signing bonus and the prorated contract. Still not bad, but not nearly as enticing as burning an entire year off an ELC.
http://unitedstatesofhockey.com/2013...ollege-hockey/

In other words, current or future contract, it doesn't matter.
Agents will no longer have leverage to say "current contract or we're not signing", which has been the case with some players such as Frattin.

Does Kristo really have what it takes? With the emergence of Gallagher, if he keeps it up, we have 1 top 6 RW. With Gionta coming to the end of his contract, I can see him sign for a fraction of the price to probably play on the 3rd line. Now we have two RW that I can see crack the NHL lineup (I am not sold on Holland, but I haven't seen that much of him). Collberg I feel is anywhere between 2-4 or more years away from playing a regular shift in the NHL. This could change if he wants to come over sooner and adapt to the NHL game. Kristo is the only other RW that can be penciled in to the top 6 without subtracting somewhere else. (Let's say a trade) (or we sign Corey Perry... and I woke up out of my dream!)

I guess we will have to wait and see how he does in the AHL to get a more recognizable measuring stick, as NCAA just doesn't cut it for me. (I don't have that good of an eye for talent, not that it can't be done)

Thanks for the info. Good to know they are protecting the teams a bit from players that are greedy (Seems to be a trend of players from the NCAA, not all, some.)

We never have too mnany good players. Injuries, trades, lack of production by some players. With his skating and offensive skills, Kristo could become a solid NHL player.

Don't see why he should be bought up to Montreal and likely play little if it all. Better to sign him for next year and let him play out the season in Hamilton.

The most underrated prospect the Habs had for years. Way better than Louis Leblanc.

Leblanc and Kristo played together in Omaha. They have about the same talent level, just different sets of skills. Leblanc went thru way too many teams to develop properly. Kristo stayed 4 years with the same College. leblanc played against real NHL hockey players last season. Kristo has yet to prove he can do that.

Kristo has NHL speed and shot right now. He just needs to put some weight on and keep working hard and he could be NHL ready next season.

He'll almost definitely start in the AHL but he is dominating in a pretty strong league now. No reason to think he can't be atleast a bit contributor to the team next season.

Good news for Kristo on his charges... he is ready to start his party career here in Mont-real as long as he is not buying for the Gallys.

Bounanotte awaits!

BTW.... deferred sentence defination below.

"A deferred sentence is a sentence that is suspended until after a defendant has completed a period of probation. If the defendant fulfills the stipulations surrounding probation, a judge may then throw out the sentence and guilty plea, clearing the incident from their record. If the defendant violates probation, he or she must serve the full sentence immediately.[1]

In the United States, a defendant must plead guilty to at least one of the crimes he or she is accused of in order to receive a deferred sentence. The promise of a deferred sentence is often traded in exchange for a guilty plea in plea bargains.

Deferred sentences are often given to first time offenders, or to those who have committed relatively minor crimes, although ultimately, the choice to defer a sentence is left to a judge's discretion.
"

Not a big deal imo. Also even if ND has an early exit from the playoffs, they will still likely be Frozen Four bound since they are high up in the pairwise rankings. Even if not they wouldn't know it until the end of the month when the teams are announced.

The loop hole is for players that spend a year outside the NCAA as NHL draft picks, so that after 3 years in the NCAA, they can opt out and become UFA's.

Mac Bennett, Mark MacMillan and Colin Sullivan can all opt out after their 3rd year in the NCAA. So Bennett this summer, MacMillan the next and Sullivan the following.

Just a bit of a party culture with the team and no leniency from the police it seems.
The funny thing is Frattin was suspended and missed the entire semester (half the season), it didn't seem to hurt him.

Saw him play early in the year and I can confirm that yes he is ready to be in the NHL. Put him on the 3rd line and he will do just fine.
