The same can be said of Simon fighting for a spot with Strait and Bortuzzo. Just because the WBS team sux doesn't take away what these players capabilities are and what they have done in the past.
People have been so obsessed with Tangradi being the answer to the top six winger problem, they forget that championships are won with more than two lines.

Did we all forget about how below avg King looked in the A and the impact he had on LA's cup run playng third line minutes? (King has to prove himself for 82 games, but that remains to be seen)

Or that without the major contributions from the third line, the Pens don't win the cup.

If Tangradi settles in as a talented third liner, I will be quite happy with that. He can still have a big impact there.
