I think he's ready too.
But that doesnt' mean we don't need a big shutdown blueliner to go with him. Tinordi's a rookie. Just because he's an NHL ready rookie doesn't change anything. Our D is weak defensively. We need a guy who can log big minutes in a defensive role who can actually clear the crease and kill penalties. We don't have this right now so the burden will be put on Tinordi. Maybe Murray can help out but he seems awfully slow.
A legit number three shutdown guy was needed in the worst way and I don't think we addressed this problem. Tinordi and Murray
work out but we're rolling the dice.
My fingers are crossed but I don't like the look of our D at all from a defensive standpoint. Offensively? That's a different story.
