It just puts us in a much better position trade wise.

Where are all the posters who were cursing the name of Lowe when he traded Pisa and got Cross? Where's Pisa? Somewhere in Europe. Where's Cross? Playing as one of our most solid defencemen. I realize that there was alot more to that deal but essentially that is how it played out.
Lowe must have known something about Pisa going to Europe. He doesn't get credit for foresight as often as he should.

Cross plays unremarkably and seems to be beat a lot, but as I have said before his +/- numbers are incredible. I think he lead the horrible Rangers last year with +17 or something like that. He always had a high +/- in To as well.

Not pretty, but seems to be effective.
