As I mentioned when the Leafs scored their 4th goal: 4 goals on 6 scoring opportunities.
I can't wait to hear what you have to say about our best forward prospect in Tangradi.
His defenders have been quiet tonight.
You know, I think some are citing that failed dump as when Bylsma pulled the plug.
IMO, the experiment 'ended' when Geno was busting free and Tangradi, if he'd looked, would've seen Geno streaking into the offensive zone with two steps on his defender. Instead, Tangradi put his head down and skated to the side to 'create space and let the other forwards catch up'. By the time he looked up, Geno was already out of real estate.
I don't know if Tangradi has a future in the league. He might. He actually might be a lot better with Crosby. But, on a team where it's Geno or bust, I think it needs to be bust.
Still, I'd be willing to give him another chance. I just think it's 50/50 that Bylsma is.
