Can someone who has seen him play (regularly) tell me what they see in him? All these conflicting opinions is confusing me!

As for Kristo, I've never liked his off-ice antics and I ranted against him earlier in the year. He seems like he has to grow the f up if he wants to be a professional - but supposedly he's talented so let's see how it goes.
The only antic which was stupid was walking barefoot in the snow, other than that he's okay. So what he bought alcohol for his team? Many more players have done it but have never got caught.

Can he be a solution between Eller - Galchenuk for short terms?
Short term? I don't get what you're trying to say, kid is 22 years old.

I wouldn't be surprised if he gets a few NHL games this year. Especially if he signs before guys like Bourque and Prust are back.

Love this kid, I always ranked him high on our prospects list and am absolutely sure he will make it to the big show. I see him ahead of all our other forward prospects for sure.

Just give him a lifetime supply of kegs and a new beer funnel and he'll be set.

I'm not sure which is funnier, that I caught a few with my post or that it's still so believable that tons on this board still don't understand the loophole rule

We should make a thread everytime we negotiate with our bosses.

Having been through the whole "Captain Gorges" thing, this is a

How about people still not being able to spell 'Gorges' for that matter?

With our current situation at forward, it'd be nice for him to sign relatively soon so he can get a spell on the top 9 while we have injuries up front. Gionta and Armstrong aren't making anyone expendable.

The difference, to me, isn't a question of what era we're in, let's not act as if a career in pro sports is the same as any other. Such a career requires discipline and professionalism at a very young age because their prime years are usually between 25 and 30 as opposed to simply acquiring experience and getting better at your trade all the way to retirement in your 50's-60's.

I'm not saying he's a lost cause, far from it, I just think his career would benefit from the presence of veterans around him.

If Kristo could perform on the same level as Gallagher, I'd be very happy. I hope that he could join Habs this season. Better to try him than playing Moen, White or Armstrong.
