Guaranteed if Thomas was our prospect and the trade was in reverse many of the same people would be freaking out about how Bergevin traded a blue chip 20 year old who can score for an old 23 year old who hasn't shown anything in the pros and has attitude problems.
It's all about fan familiarity with the player, I leave the evaluation to the pros. Until of course they prove they don't know any more than I do (Gainey/Gauthier) .
Just when you finally see the light at the end of the tunnel with Danny Kristo..........so looking forward to him next year..........it gets snatched away..........Im pissed.
Was really looking forward to this prospect but hey maybe Im wrong and he just wasn't suited to the managements plan.
The Habs have been making strides toward picking up players with the ability to score goals and Christian is definitely a goalscorer. He's also a team player first and foremost the type of player that coaches love to have.
Maybe Danny Kristos ego got ahead of himself and just couldnt put himself through an entire year riding a Hamilton Bulldog bus around.
If that is the case so be it. I just cant explain why all of a sudden management gives up on a player like Kristo.
