I think we developed him horrendously, and it was fairly obvious from the get-go that Disco Dan hated Tangradi. Not quick enough for Disco.
All I know is you win Stanley Cups with big forwards that grind opponents down. Tangradi would have been perfect on our third line, but alas it was second or fourth line for him all the time. He was a perfect replacement for Matt Cooke (UFA after this year), but alas he wasn't going to survive here with Bylsma.
I hope he rips it up with the Jets.
He couldn't even rip a piece of wet paper.
Granted Disco Dan isn't the best coach for bringing in young guys, Tangradi has shown less than nothing at the NHL level. He's a fringe NHLer at best, most likely a career minor leaguer. He's Luca Bazooka 2.0.
