Looking like a bottom 6 player to me. His lack of assist in WBS is a red flag IMO. This shows how highly dependent he is on linemmates to feed him the puck in the crease. He starts as a NHL 3rd line player that has no real other utility except on the #2 PP as front net presence.

BB is looking like a better pick every day.
Tangradie's game has always been possession and playmaking. It took him near 40 games to get the possession part down in the NHL, but it started to come near the end.

In the AHL this year Tangradie (he dominates puck possesion in the AHL) is responding to coaching, and working to morph his game into that of a net crashing power forward. It will all come together soon.
