Gross is wrong about Tambellini.

He had 2-2-4 for the Sioux, then was a combined 22-26-48 in 37 games for the Hitmen.

Tambellini was a great addition for Calgary. He was essentially their most productive playmaker and developed chemistry with Virtanen, who's a Kreider clone.

The coach was fired after the first round loss to Kootenay (the series Skapski was horrific) and replaced by Mark French, who won a Calder Cup with Hershey and was in the KHL.

I didnt like Tambellini after the NoDak thing but it was obviously the right choice. He should have a big year this year.

Whether or not his game translates to the NHL is a mystery. French will definitely have him AHL-ready after next season.
