He looks best at RW? If that's true then great. Kuni-Sid-Tangradi sounds good to me in the future.

I believe you, but what makes you say that? Why do they have him on LW if he looks better on the RW?

Jeffrey-Staal-Tangradi is intriguing. And Cooke-Vitale-Dupuis just isn't fair as a 4th line.

Hopefully he can make an impact. He looked better in his second call up last season before that trailer trash gave him a concussion. And then pretty good in the 1 playoff game as well. I'm sure he knows how important this is to make an impression on DB and Shero.

I would actually employ the 4th line as the shutdown line of the bunch.

Tangradi-Vitale-Adams

-_-

wow, I thought when a player is producing, it would make sense to see if he can produce by putting him with players who he is close to in terms of the style of play, put him with the 2nd line, scoring, two way/power forwards, not the 4th line!

I think Gradi and Joe Victory will show some skills tonight around the net.

Honestly, Tangradi's best stretches have been when he was on Vitale's line. Vitale's work ethic rubs off on him.

Good to see Tangradi getting a call up, how's he been holding up in the AHL? I like him as a player and he's thankfully come back from that concussion from last season fully, he's a decent third line player and can fill in a role for less when/if one of Asham/Cooke/Adams or Dupuis retires or leave due to money restrictions.

What's the chances Tangradi will stick? At this point, do you think he could still fetch the Pens a first rounder or first round type talent if they did, in fact, decide to deal him?

Value wise it might be in the ballpark, but why would Pens want to trade a player that is relativly close to contributing right now for a piece that might help them in 3-4 years?

Only thought of it because if A) Tangradi couldn't establish a spot in the Pens lineup and B) the Pens felt there was better value with having a first round pick.
