He showed last season that he _can_ play in the NHL. But... he was used as a 3rd pairing guy... he averaged 13 mins in the playoffs and 11 mins in the regular season. My question is how much will the coaching staff be willing to trust him... because if he plays some nights, sits in the press box some nights, and gets lets than 15 mins a night when he does play... well, I wouldn't be against seeing him play 25 mins a night in Hamilton instead.

All depends on who else we sign, to me. If we sign one more solid guy on D, it opens the door to sending somebody down. Tinordi is the easiest one to send down. So I wouldn't rule out sending him down, even while thinking he's capable of playing in the NHL.
