BC's Milner gets chance to open more eyes (ESPN Boston)
"He’s proved his worth this past season and he would be a great pickup for any NHL team," said Cross, the Bruins’ second pick (35th overall) in 2007. "He was absolutely not human this past season, especially in the Hockey East playoffs and the NCAAs. We don’t even come close to winning the title without him."

"It’s good for Tommy. For him to be a National Hockey League player he’s going to have to develop a bit of that edge. Knight is a guy that naturally bowls his way toward the net. That’s just the way he plays and Tommy is going to have to stop those kinds of players," said Cassidy. "It’s good for him to show some push-back and if he develops that side of his game that will be a good thing for him."

"I think because he’s such a good goaltender, it might surprise you (that Milner wasn’t drafted)," said Tommy Cross, Milner’s former BC teammate and fellow camper. "But I think that happens a lot. The draft happens at such a young age — I was drafted when I was 17. You’re different when you’re 20 or 23 than when you’re 18. Some guys might develop a little bit after and that’s why they don’t get drafted. That might be what you’re seeing, but that’s not to say he’s not a top-caliber goalie because he certainly is."

"To get the experience of winning, first of all it makes you want to do it more," Cross said. "And you need to learn how to win. But at the end of the day that was winning at the college level. When you get to the next level, whether it be the AHL or the NHL, some things are consistent, but it's a different ballgame and I'll be looking to learn from the older guys. I'll take my experiences and use those to help me, but it will be a step up, a new environment and new challenges that will be that much harder."
