On top of being healthy scratched numerous times as Jacob pointed out, he is averaging 9:53 of ice time so far this season. That's down from last season and is less than his average TOI with the Penguins. His production has also stayed the same.

Tangradi is not a very good NHL player and never really showed anything of note at any point that would lead you to believe he would thrive with more ice time. The fact that people are using him as evidence that this organization is mishandling young players is insane. He's done absolutely nothing to suggest trading him was a mistake.
