If Jeffrey can improve his skating, so can Tangradi. What I would like to see from Tangradi is better conditioning. He's a big guy, that's all you hear...but he doesn't use his size to punish people or create more room for himself, unless he's in the AHL and even then, it's not consistently enough.

If he heads to Gary Roberts' Gym with Neal and whomever else from the Pens that goes and changes Tangradi's lifestyle from eating to working out and Eric continues to work on his skating, there is no telling how improved he could be when September rolls around. That's about 5 months away. IF any of us were to commit ourselves to training for 5months, you'd be astonished with the results.

The only thing that truly angers me is the way Dan handles rookies, maybe he doesn't see it as well, it wouldn't just be Dan's fault though. Ray Shero is HIS boss, if his boss can't see it, it's a bigger issue than just the coach being a hard ass with rookies.
