It's not just about the player being functional, he has to excel in this role if we're going to beat Boston and like the previous poster says, with his skating ability, it's likely that he's gonna be a good hitter. He does need to get to at least 225 before he can routinely handle the Lucic's. He's already there almost. Another summer and he's there.
My post was trying to illustrate that it's not just how big the player is but how big he plays. The fact that Tinordi is a giant and has a nasty streak is his saving grace. The fact he weighs 10 lbs more or less is imo irrelevant as he has more than enough size to take on any player in the league, including Lucic. The question is WILL he. I think he will.
