Just cuz he's tall doesn't mean hes a tough guy. His size is not completely proportional to his height (aka, hes skinny).

Subban, Markov, and Gorges are an automatic lock for next year. If Emelin is healthy before the season starts then hes also a lock. One of our 2 spots will likely go to Bouillon for his veteranship and toughness (hes tougher than Tinordi IMO), and the other spot will either go to Diaz or Tinordi...

So Tinordi is cutting it to be the 6th d-man... Beaulieu could also snatch that spot if he does well in AHL as well...

Best thing to do right now is trade diaz since his value is pretty good, and lock tinordi a spot with beaulieu being the 7th alternate (for injuries and such)
