This would essentially be the toughest challenge of Tinordi's life, and in comparison to his season with the Bulldogs, the level of play might be overwhelming. Going from a losing AHL season directly into the NHL playoffs might not be a smart idea for his development and for the Habs' sake.
He went to the memorial cup last year. He was on an elite Junior team. Tinordi is a player made for the playoffs. I rather give him ice-time as our 6th dman than Drewiske.

Drewiske is not physical, is not offensive, is not fast and won't be with us next year.
