Lest you talk about how he only plays for good teams, consider how poor defensively the Habs played this year. Tanguay was still +13, one of the best on the team. Tanguay is far from one-dimensional. He always backchecks and isn't as prone to giveaways as many creative players.

EDIT: Tanguay led the team in plus-minus
Most forwards that are considered "wonderful two-way players" usually kill penalties, block shots, or have a high number of take aways. Since he doesnt play physical, avoids traffic, isn't known to be one of those character leader guys; I will stand by my statement that he is a soft one dimensional player.
