Just cause DB and Shero have rode out one questionable decision (permanently attaching Dupuis to Sid's hip) to questionable results doesn't mean they should do it again. If Tangradi shows something playing on the 4th line, he'll likely get another chance sometime later. Tangradi could have forced DB's hand if he played well with Geno and Neal, but he didn't. He's still got a chance to make an impression on the 4th line and he better make the most of it.
Well, he had only 2 games with limited ice time and he did some good and bad moves, but who didn't? It's the start of the season! And yes, I said 2 games, because 6 shifts is not enough to prove anything. Also he played less minutes than 3rd and 4th liners (except Glass in NY and Jeffrey in PHI).

Let's be honest, he can bring something too, but you have to support him and give him a real chance in second line. Playing 2-3 shifts with G and Neal, then playing with different guys, then back to G and Neal is not very helpful too.
