Time for Tangradi to **** or get off the pot. I hope he can be a regular on this team.

Surprised Tangradi would accept a two-way. For the way the organization has been devolving him, he seems to have a very good attitude. I think he will bust but I really want him to prove me wrong. Even if he turns into a Matt Cooke type role player, I'll be happy.

If he's good enough to be an NHLer someone would claim him on waivers before he had to worry about the minor league salary.

he probably also gets a higher NHL salary this way.

All guys are waiver eligible. Grant would pass though...Bortuzzo and Tangradi would not.

I would say that he has to get his chance to get on the pot first. That's a matter of opinion though.

If there is a lockout you can still send players to the minors right? Could it be possible that these deals are so they can keep playing in the AHL while the pros ...are locked out? I would guess many teams have around 50 contracts right now. with the waiver rule you end up keeping a player on the pro roster if claimed.... not playing and all three still need to play so the likelihood of being claimed is low for these three I think ... if there is a long lockout.

I'd be curious to know the rules of the waiver wire if there is a lockout also.

I think they'd probably have to be agreed upon as a part of the lockout terms. Though it seems reasonable to assume that they'd be pretty similar to the current rules for the time being.

For some reason, Capgeek is missing Jayson Megna, so the Pens are at 51 with Harrington.

Thunder Bay represent!!!

But seriously, glad for Bortuzzo. If there's a season, I'm excited to see what Tangradi can bring. He's got the tools so hopefully he can find a niche on somewhere in the lineup.

If they get picked back up by the original team can that team then send them to the farm club? I believe this was the case when we picked Chris Bourque off waivers and Washington picked him back up. It's very unlikely that Strait, Tangrandi or Bortuzzo would make it through waivers unless they completely bombed in training camp. Grant should make it through with no problems.
I think technically any other team could pick him up if his original team tried to send him down again. But since the original team made it clear that they would pick him up again if another team tried to claim him, there is no point. So that's why a guy normally makes it through wavers when is original team tries for the second time.

You sure? Normally it's a high AHL salary to keep the NHL cap hit down. But maybe it's different in this case, but his NHL salary seems pretty low.

I thought he had an 825k salary last year? So wouldn't this be lower?

right its lower than it was before on his old contract. But if he would have pushed for a one way contract that was NHL pay no matter what, it would have probably been lower than the 726k he got on a two way contract.

Tangradi had an 846k cap hit last season due to signing bonuses on his ELC, but only a 660k salary for 11-12. So he actually got a raise now while his cap hit went down at the same time. Everybody's happy.

Yep. He is 23 and "should" be near to his prime as a forward. Sad thing is that this is "as good as it gets" for him or not far from it. As everyone knows, he is running out of time. He is the same age as J. Staal FWIW, and Staal has already played 400+ NHL games. Tangradi is at 40 career games.

Hopefully he has been improving his skating and shot this off season.
