As SS said - both are to blame. I still think it's better than letting him his waivers. A pick is a pick in the NHL draft. Talent can be ubiquitous, but development is needed.
Agreed entirely.

Tangradi is the type of player who needs to play his way up through the line-up and be allowed to grow through his shortcomings. Regardless of who's coaching this team it's hard to have a legitimate Cup contender that's willing to stick with a guy who's just not playing NHL caliber hockey for extended periods of time.

This trade was the best thing that could have happened to the guy. Winnipeg can afford to look at this potential instead of his results for the time being.

“The most terrifying fact about the universe is not that it is hostile, but that it is indifferent. If we can come to terms with this indifference and accept the challenges of life within the boundaries of death, our existence as a species can have genuine meaning and fulfillment. However vast the darkness, we must supply our own light.” - Stanley Kubrick
