I'd say he is ideal for the third line. He and Vitale did quite well in a checking line role in WBS.

I've been spouting the same thing for awhile about giving Crosby and Malkin legit wingers. However, people have tunnel vision with Tangradi and don't understand he can have value beyond a top six role.
As much as anything, I'd like to see Tangradi in the line-up just to add some size/strength/physicality to the forward line-up. He has some offensive upside, naturally, but that'd just be gravy.
