Just giving Tangradi a spot without making him earn it. That's a bad plan. Especially on a team with cup aspirations. We aren't in the business of throwing young players on the team and hoping they don't sink. They need to earn their spots. We're in win now mode.
You don't throw away a potentially good player to keep Craig Adams. He will be in the NHL this year. If its not with us, someone else will pick him up on waivers. And he has earned a spot over Adams. He is a better player. With Glass here, Adams is now at best our number 5 PK guy behind Cooke, Dupuis, Sutter and Glass.

Right, Asham has done a great job of that

But you are happy with Adams there, who is **** and is getting ****tier

Adams as the 13th is fine I guess, though honestly I'd rather Jeffrey.
