Graduate? I live in Alberta, where you can make 150K a year without being able to read and write.

Seriously though, if he turns out to be a better skating version of Stuart I will ecstatic. But I'm not holding my breath.

Could have sworn yesterday he decided to finish up school and wouldn't be going to the AHL quite yet. Guess he changed his mind!

What should we expect a Don Awrey type?

We have drafted a couple of players that the Bruins said were captain material, Smolinski was one.

Congrats to Cross!

That said, he's got a long ways to go still to crack the Boston blueline full-time.

Chara - not going anywhere

Seidenberg - signed for another two seasons after this one

Ference - signed for another season. bruins love his character and leadership ( hence the A ) as well as his keep it simple style.

Boychuk - just resigned for another three seasons. our most physical defenseman in terms of game changing hits. Our best RH shot from the point

McQuaid - signed for another three seasons. our most physical defenseman in terms of pugilism. plays a solid 15 minutes a night. makes few mistakes.

After that 5, Cross is in competition with

Hamilton - Boston's best prospect, most likely with the big club next season

Zanon - Seidenberg-lite. great shotblocker, solid defensively

Krug - has showed excellent all-around awareness despite his size. great first pass

IMO, Cross will be good to have for depth in the case of injury, but I can't see him cracking the lineup full-time unless they decide to part ways with Ference ( unlikely unless a sudden drop in performance ) and McQuaid's noggin keeps on taking a beating.

I think a few years (at least one) in Providence is what he needs anyways while we lose other guys to free agency and cap reasons - the whole culture down there needs to change anyways, and adding a hard worker like Cross oughta help change that. I expect him, Krug, and Warsofsky to shore up Providence's defense next season

I hope to see Kreider play with NYR. I think hes gonna be a Pacioretty type of player (size skill and wheels). Lets trade for him

Cross is the first player in NHL history to sign a contract that is both entry level and a 35+ deal at the same time.
