What is holding Tardif back from NHL time?? Thx
The lockout?

Seriously, Tardif is basically as you called him, an AHL journeyman. He spent several years in the Detroit organization. He's a decent player and works hard but I wouldn't call him a hidden gem or anything like that.

This is Trotman's first pro year and he's looked good to me every time I've seen him. I think he needs some time, though, like the vast majority of young defensemen.

I paid particular attention to Cross last night and liked what I saw. No panic or heedless puck-chasing in his own end, even under pressure, and he can hit.
