I think he might end-up being very good. I remember a young Chara who struggled a lot and looked terrible in his first few seasons. He ended-up out of position more often than not, but could compensate with his reach. It took him at least 4-5 seasons (26-27 years old) before becoming better both offensively and defensively.

Now, that might be coincidental and rather related to a slower learning curb from Chara, but that would still include a longer physical adaptation, because that's generally the rule, and having seen it, IMO it was both in Chara's case. I might be wrong, but I've seen Tinordi in interviews and he seems a notch brighter so I'm not too worried about him learning.
Yes and so Chara really benefited the Bruins, not the Islanders.
