People can hate on Tangradi all he wants, 2 ex players saying the same thing...kind of speaks volumes to me. No one seems to care though.
Meh. I don't mind Bylsma holding OK youngsters to high standards when it comes to playing time. If you **** up (aside from his obvious favorites), the guys that aren't ****ing up are going to play over you. Especially when you're a prospect on a team that is chasing the Cup every year. Especially when your main talent is not ****ing up too much (Strait, Lovejoy). DB isn't going to do that with guys who are clearly going to be impact NHLers like Despres and Bennett, so I have no problem with him doing it with middle-of-the-road prospects like Tangradi, Strait, and Lovejoy. All assets that were deemed expendable because other guys were outplaying them. I have no issue with it.
