So what seems obvious over the last number of years in the play-offs is speed is very important , maybe most important, but if you do not have good size and physical play you will lose. I am not forgetting skill, that goes without question .

Tinordi may not have a good offensive skill set but he is 6 foot 6, and clearly is developing a mean, crease clearing, hard hitting, defensive D man game and, he is quite mobile for a guy his size. Think if he develops into a Gorges but who is much bigger and can hit, would that be good ? Having a huge guy like that is needed by everyone, having a guy like that who can skate is invaluable and fits in with our speed identity.

You do not trade a guy like this except in a package where you are adding to get something even better, like a big 2 way defenceman. You do not trade this guy for multiple pieces and I don't see what you would get one for one to make it interesting for us, but depends on the return as always.
