there/they're/their

then/than

And what bugs me most, is when people use "of" instead of "have". Example: I should of walked up to him

Oh well, I guess some people will never learn

It can be, but if you actually pay attention to it, you'll see that almost every single time on these forums, they are used incorrectly. It's pretty amazing really. I would think more people would get it right just by accident.

It's obvious we don't have many programmers around here, since there are so many If/Than statements lol.

If / then is only for Visual Basic (bleh). It's usually just if in almost all programming languages.

Okay, let try to get back on topic.

I'm excited to see what competition for spots there is in camp. We already felt like Fast, Lindberg, and Miller were going to be the most competitive. Is Kristo in that group now too? Or do we feel he's going to need to start the year getting some seasoning in Hartford?

Hard to say. I haven't seen him play since the 2010 WJC. He didn't do much in 9 games in the AHL last year, but I don't read too much into that given the circumstances.

He seems similar to Miller in terms of play style and we have holes to fill with Cally and Hagelin recovering from surgery. Fast and Lindberg may need time to adjust to the smaller ice, but Kristo might need time to adjust to the pros.

Kreider
McIlrath
Fast
Lindberg
Kristo
..are the ones I'll be watching most closely. I'm sure there will be a couple of surprises though.

Hrivik, Yogan, Miller are very close as well.

Yes, Miller should be added to the list. Hrivik and Yogan I'm still kind of meh on, but we shall see. In any case a pretty well rounded group of prospect with a decent shot at NHL minutes next year.

Thomas was one of my favorite prospects, along with Yogan and MSC, sad to see him go.
I don't watch NCAA so I don't know much about Monty (), but from what I read it's a good trade.

They should have just traded first names.

Then you'd have Christian Kristo and Danny Thomas.

Larry brooks writes in new york post the rangers feel they " absolutely stole" Kristo from Montreal

And I read Leslie Treff said that with the acquisition of Danny Kristo for Christian Thomas says the rangers keep taking Montreal to the cleaners

Hopefully Kristo is the second coming of Montreal's McDonagh misjudgement.

Eager to see him and a lot of others in preseason.

It would be nice to have one of those in the forward corps.

Maybe that's why the Rangers have drafted so few goalies in the last few years. When Hank finally starts to get long in the tooth, they're planning on calling MTL about their best goalie prospect.

I'd be surprised if Kristo stepped right in and was successful out of the gate. If Cally and Hagelin are out to start the season, I'm sure he'll get a long look. However, he was so-so in his small stint in Hamilton this year.

That being said, there's a lot to like about the tools this kid has. I don't think he's quite as agitating as a Brad Marchand, but the speed, release, and playmaking abilities are there. He's certainly not afraid to mix it up physically. The existing chemistry with Stepan is a nice bonus. If Stepan winds up with two finishers in Kreider and Kristo that he has natural chemistry with, that could be really, really exciting to watch.
