hahaha @ everyone hating on the trade!! you guys clearly don't know who Christian Thomas is!!! I'm so amped for this deal, another sick young prospect to add to the core! He is the son of Steve Thomas and played his only NHL game this year vs the Habs in Mtl, he is a PURE sniper and if you guys think Ryder could shoot, wait for this kid, he can actually skate and pass too! lol
He is one of the players they refused to give up for Rick Nash at the trade deadline a couple of years ago and why the deal happened in the summer. Also was the last cut for team Canada WJ couple years back.
Hopefully by the time he is ready we add a few more big bodies to the core.
Going forward we have a little too many undersized prospects. Gally is with us long term, unless we can deal DD we might be in a hair of trouble.
Don't quite understand this trade. If the Habs really felt the need to rid themselves of Kristo for whatever the reason, why not include him as part of a larger deal to get a better player? I mean, would not a package of Plekanec + Kristo + second draft pick gotten us a better return than simply shipping off Kristo for an AHLer?
