I was talking to a crossover scout yesterday who noted that Crisp is one tough SOB. Mentioned that he's not a very good skater, but was surprised when I told him that Crisp scored 22 goals. Obviously he was flying under teams' radars as Erie ended up not having any other guys to scout at year's end with Harper and Betz falling off the map.
The Habs had Crisp at their mini combine, and according to Trevor he "really surprised us" in the skating department. I guess he's come a long way in that regard. It should also be noted that the Habs put an emphasis on skating in the offseason, and have one of the best skating teachers in the business in Paul Lawson.
