Tangradi I don't really put in the 4th line category. I think he's either going to be a 2nd 3rd line tweener or he's going to be waived. I also think it's too soon to give up on him.
Someone will pick up Volpatti, I'm pretty sure of that.
Ya, on ice wise, I hope we do make the swap of Volpatti for Thorburn if we can. It is an upgrade in my opinion and that's what it's all about, making the roster better step by step, bit by bit.
I somewhat agree with Tangradi, but my hunch is he's nothing more than an AHL'er who can't produce or find a role in the NHL.
All in all, at the end of the day, I just want to see Chevy make these kind of upgrades as he see's fit. I see an upgrade here, one that can add defensive responsibility (which would go a long way with this team), a great amount of physicality and a nice touch of toughness. That's why I am kind of rambling on here, because I see an upgrade available for free.
I think someone claims Volpatti. I hope it is the Winnipeg Jets.
