Funny enough, I was one of the one's that didn't like the deal at the time, but I don't really mind it now At least Tambo tried to fill a hole based on the options he had

Yup. Thats his role as an NHLer. Barbaric but true.
Agreed. He can probably play well in a powerforward type role in a lesser league since he's actually got some talent, but not in the NHL. He needs to be able to play on the edge, and actually back it up.
