Putting a complementary player on the 4th line and expecting them to "earn it" offensively with the likes of Craig Adams and Joe Vitale is just silly. Tangradi will prove his worth with good players, or he won't. Find out what we have, and then deal with him accordingly.
Vitale got a chance to play third line minutes when injuries hit and eventually he will be a third liner when Cooke or TK are gone.
I agree Tangradi should be put in a position to succeed, but I just see no reason to trade him when the return will be zilch and there is a dearth of talented fwd prospects in the system. I think with REGULAR minutes, even on the fourth line, he would eventually work his way up.
