I think everyone is being objective. We're just applying different standards. In the same way that most believe that Sid needs a second wheel on his line, most thing Geno and Neal, as things stand now, could do for an upgrade when the playoffs come.

So, if you look at it from that perspective only, then the instant reaction is to say 'Tangradi doesn't cut it'. From my perspective, I'd agree on the one hand. On the other hand, I saw enough good things from his game today to think that he's got the potential to cut it.

Most may have a different opinion, but I'm looking at Tangradi as I look at Despres. The question isn't so much the minutia of his game but whether or not keeping him is a decision you will come to appreciate in March and April.

It was very small baby steps in game one for Tangradi, but he made them.
