I don't think that just because Crosby has a "gritty star" look to his game doesn't mean those same players are who he's best with. Of course, it's all about creating space. If he played with Perry or Hossa I don't think you'd see a world of difference.
I think Tangradi has completed more give and goes with Sid in 2 or 3 shifts than Dupuis or Kunitz have in 2 or 3 years. He has that ability and the physical attributes imo. He needs to figure out how to get his brain working at an NHL level though. I really think that's his biggest hurdle. He looks like he's over-thinking every single play.
