Funny how many people don't like Kristo now.

Personally I never thought he was a good prospect.

It's the same story when we trade anyone. Everyone else is the problem, not Habs fans or the Montreal market.

Kristo was a 2nd rounder.

If Bergevin was done with Kristo, at least get something of value in return instead of another ****ing undersized forward.

Twenty-one years old and the anorexic still weighs 162 pounds.

Unbelievable.

The most disappointing part of this deal....After a five year wait ...I'll never get to use the headline "Mr. Kristo, you make good rookies."

Sorry I Don't Get It

1. draft Kristo
2. kid develops to a point where he is clearly a top player in college hockey. So I don't know what all the "experts" on this board think he wasnt a quality prospect. maybe because he is a NYR now?
3. kid is FINALLY ready to play and see where his skill level is at.
4. Hfboards "experts" annoint him as a top 6 player right away....
5. Habs trade him without even so much as one training camp out of college?

DON'T like this ...unless he had a Real attitude issue (not a bunch of rumors) or asked for a trade, I don't get the rush to trade him?

Bergy draft some huge guys two days ago and publicly talks about needing to address size and we get another midget???

Don't get this at all... Not at all....I was excited to see what Kristo would develop into.

Noreau was barely a top 4 defenseman in the Q at 19...

Also interesting that people are all over MB for this trade, yet are ok with the fact he's done nothing to actually improve the on ice product.

Who are you to know that MB didn't ask for Noreau?

by my calculations Thomas is 3'11"??

I believe there only 2" difference.

Add in that 19 goals is tops on the dogs and he would have lead the team in points, too.

There were yellow flags all over Kristo. They traded him for an offensive player who grew up under Steve Thomas' rules. Let's see it play out.
When I first joined this site (before the new millennium) most of the posters were hardcore hockey fans. They had to be to find a prospect site prior to effective search engines. There were still mindless posts from many people but it is so out of hand today as the boards are filled with completely unknowledgeable fans who just run their mouths without any knowledge of the game or players involved in it.

I would venture to say that less than 5% have anything of value to add to a thread.

Still digesting this trade, I was a definite Kristo fan. Interesting that he's Steve Thomas kid, and from an interview I've seen, seems to have Berg's favourite word "character". Also appears he can handle himself, lets see what happens.

MB & co. must really have soured on Kristo's attitude... otherwise it's hard to see the sense in basically swapping smallish, offensively skilled unproven players.

After Kristo's excellent last year in the NCAA, and waiting this long for him to turn pro, it's understandable that the fan base is frustrated that we move him for an asset that doesn't fill any kind of obvious need, nor is any more NHL ready than Kristo seems to be.

I hope the Steve Thomas connection proves to be more of an astute "using inside knowledge to grab a kid with strong intangibles" than a nepotistic move.

Will be very interested to see how the next 2-3 years play out for both players, needless to say that if Kristo becomes a solid top-9 contributor while Thomas never makes it past borderline AHL-NHL guy, it will prove to be a huge blunder by MB.
