He was a number 2. Just like Thomas.

Is this the guy everyone was complaining about because he wouldn't pass to rangers prospects during the world jnrs a few years back?

Kristo has never really looked right after his frostbite incident IMO.

Perhaps a slightly better overall player at this point...but Thomas has one tool (shot) that is better than anything Kristo's got.

As an aside about the "party" label:

I dare anyone to spend significant time in North Dakota and stay sober.

I like this trade.Thomas will look good in Montreal, but I doubt he'd ever look okay in ny. it's a pretty even trade, but maybe he'll syncup with stepan and krier

Just thought he lost a little bit of the shiftiness and jump in close quarters he used to have. Obviously he still produced.

It was at one point considered a career threatening injury. Glad he battled through it.

Not smart enough to make an avatar bet with a Bruins fan.

Hmm. Interesting move. Stick him on the third line with Lindberg/Miller and just let em go?

Christian Thomas' first NHL game was against Montreal. Coincidence? I THINK NOT

I was only half serious. Would be a nice experiment.

In all seriousness though, sounds like Callahan would be a good mentor for him? Kristo has more offensive skill, but they are similarly sized and can both play defense.

Habs fan here... so sad, I was waiting for Kristo for years. You guys should really be happy, and I mean it.

McDonagh and now Kristo...

Who knows if you'll ever see this guy play anywhere on the Rangers? In fact, I hope its just an AHL transaction.

And I hope that Kristo can one day be good enough to play on the Rangers. But that might just be me.
