I'm pretty stoked to see Tinordi finding himself a role on the team already. I was expecting to wait at least another year before he got a chance to play. We've seen a lot of very good things from Tinordi so far in his stints with the big club.
The thing that has impressed me the most so far about him is how well he uses his reach. He's winning a lot of battles along the boards by pinning players with his big frame and then using his reach to move the puck to safety or to one of his teammates. He's also able to back forwards off a bit with his reach.
The one thing that has surprised me the most is his offensive ability. He shows a bit of poise when he has the puck at the blueline, and he looks actively for offensive opportunities such as finding a way to get the puck on net. I was expecting him to be more like Gorges, who dumps the puck into the corner every time he gets it at the blueline.
