I've seen him play a bunch of games, and he's definitely not a top #2 potential, he'll end up being a 4th/5th guy at best. Basically a poor man's Komisarek. He doesn't have the vision to get it out of the zone, and under pressure he makes mistakes, especially with his passing. He also looks a bit weird sometimes when he stickhandles. If he has the potential to be a #2 with us, you're basically saying we are going to have a crappy set of dmen playing at that time.

Even Gorges who is and will be far better than Tinordi on D, and who has more offensive upside is not a top 2 guy. But Tinordi is lucky he's a tall beast, otherwise his skills would not be enough to get him into the nhl.
