Yes, and Tinordi was.... the Captain of those d-men for crying out loud!!!
Because he can get "good" players in later rounds, he choses to "swing for the fences" early.

Regardless of what Chara was, what Chara is now...Tinordi will never be. It's not putting Tinordi down, it's just...c'mon, Chara's a beast, so hard to match that.
He doesn't put in the effort and he is a below average defender. If he can play D, he hasn't showed it in the NHL. If he was on a bottom team he'd have some ghastly +- stats.

You don't think Tinordi can be a beat once his 6'7" frame fills out? He already has better mobility, imagine at 240-250lbs like Gill with mobility. I doubt Chra was a beat at 6'9" 195lbs.
