I've criticized Tanguay in the past (esp when we first signed him) but you can't scream at a guy because he's hurt or can't play effectively due to an injury.

He's not a perfect player but he's not the reason we lost either. I agree that we need more rugged players who will go to the net, but having Tanguay isn't a bad thing, esp if he signs for a reasonable amount of money.
when i think of great lines they often contain a mix of different player types, player maker and shooter, or maybe a player with the ability to go to the tough areas. they compliment each other.

gritty players can create the space and opportunities for players like tanguay to shine. i think that is what we saw from the koviu-tanguay-lats line early on, before injury broke them up. tanuagy may have had the most ppg on our team this year? don't throw the baby out with the bathwater!
