From what I've watched from Hamilton and Tinordi this year, there's no way I want the kid anywhere close to an NHL team that would give him a protector/crease peacekeeper role from the start. He's not close to being that, and doesn't understand this aspect of the game well enough to start doing that.

I really like Tinordi, but while he's done a great job to learn the speed and the logic of the pro game in the AHL this season, he still needs another year to adjust his mean streak and his physical game to really be a threat out there. Wouldn't mind if he filled his lean frame as well.
