    Defense is a terrible mess, Irwin, Cross, it doesn't matter they are too thin on the back end.

    If Chara can anchor it for 2 more years we may have a chance, but for the near future it is bleek.

    I wonder who will eventually pair on the top pairing, cause this team badly needs it.

    And suddenly, Tommy Cross turned into
    Seth Griffith!

    Can't be worse than Irwin was. I'm a little excited to see what happens (good or bad).

    I'm going to make a million jokes, but good for Tommy.
     
  10. well that's just about exactly what i would hope to read. a fired up first-timer plus Z appearing capable plus a darn near guaranteed opening of the scoring floodgates in one of the next few games and you could see this team go on a bit of a run.

    i can't help but be curious as to who is driving the personnel decisions (whether Morrow really has the flu or not). where claude would normally be inclined to sink along with his ship rather than you know use life vests when needed, sweeney certainly seems to be more proactive. of course it's just the beginning of his tenure so it's easier to do now and that could change as time passes (and needs change), but he does not appear to hesitate to move when it appears necessary. you can probably go too far in that direction but so far i really like his approach. maybe without exception actually.

    the scouting report on Cross that you just gave makes me very happy.

    Morrow trying to flu his way out of town. That's a new one.


    Well, Good for Tommy. Good luck.


    Can't get much worse anyway.

    Good luck to Dr Cross but he will always be linked to how much we screwed up the 2007 draft for me..

    the first two rounds of the 07 draft.

    Our draft

    Zach Hamill
    tommy Cross ( we move up to get him )

    Scabs

    Max Pacioretti
    Ryan McDonagh
    Pre K Subban

    oh and Wayne Simmonds was taken with the last pick in the 2nd round who seemed like a prototypical bruins pick...
    Best of luck to Tommy Cross but every time I hear his name I think what if we'd have had the Habs draft that year...

    Thanks for the summary. I have never watched Cross play and don't know much about him aside from the jokes that have been made on HF.

    What are his drawbacks/areas where he can improve? It seems like he has been in the organization forever but is only getting a callup now.

    Good for him. Never thought I would see it happen but he earned it. Maybe he could be one of those who took the Boychuk path?

    One can only hope...

    Looking back at the 2007, it was a tough one for scouts.

    The second round was a bust-fest.

    Cross was #12 at central scouting.

    Subban was #102 and Benn was #107.

    You can play this game every year with every draft. It's just mental ************.

    whether he was picked to early is now moot but lets see what he does if given a chance before everyone condemns him.

    Ahh yes, good ol' Tommy Cross. Only took him 8 years to make the big club. Finally got that medical degree going for him though, which is good. :laugh:

    In all seriousness though, congrats Tommy, make the most of it!

    I agree, but our arch rivals vs the Bruins in that draft is the most painful in memory. Not blaming Dr Cross just saying on a personal note he will always be linked to the what if.. I'm sure Habs fans do it with Lucic in the 06 draft.

    Good luck to Tommy Cross. He could have given up his dream after those knee injuries but he persevered. :yo:
