It's nice to have Tangradi and all, and I think he could become a good top 6 complement, but we're aiming low if we think he's the answer to our top 6 prayers - best-case scenario, he'll become a 50 point big-bodied forechecking and net-front presence (which basically means he'd take over when Kunitz moves on/declines). I'd like someone with a little more ability to create on his own, no disrespect to ET. We'll see if any of our 3,500 blueline prospects can yield that sort of player.
I get the feeling that Shero will end up dealing tangradi away with one of our good young Ds for a really nice forward for Sid.
Prediction: Colin Wilson (NSH), Setogushi (MIN), C.Stewart (STL), Sam Gagner (EDM), N.Kulemin (TOR), Paajarvi (EDM). They can all use what we have to offer in regards to young Ds (except NSH who'd probably prefer a vet D).
