Honestly, the "power forwards take longer time to develop" argument is becoming old. I'm a fan of Tangradi, and I've defended him for a long time, but other power forwards at least showed something during their time in the NHL before coming permanent fixtures.

Tangradi loses battles along the wall, his passing is subject and his hockey IQ should be questioned.

The most concerning part is that Tangradi literally plays like I did back in Squirt. He gets rid of the puck so quickly when it reaches his stick.

During breakouts you'll likely see him just standing in the neutral zone instead of moving his feet. Like someone said earlier, the NHL is too fast for him. He can't think the game and use his size to his advantage.

I'm done defending him and I'm this close to just saying screw it with him.

The only time he's been noticeable is when he's with Crosby. Who the **** knows why a freaking internet forum can notice it, but HCDB can't is beyond me.
