Doesnt Kuntiz play with Crosby?

We call that the Rob Brown syndrome.

That's the problem with Eric Tangradi, he doesn't play a physical game. If you're expecting that you'll be greatly disappointed. One of the major hang ups with him concerning Penguin fans is he didn't play to his size or use it in that regard.

That's the way I feel. At worst we lost a 7th for nothing. At best a serviceable RFA on a cheap two-way contract.

Suprised to see how mellow the response has been to this trade.

It's a seventh round pick for a formerly-highly touted big winger who automatically jumps guys like Peluso on the depth chart, and he's an RFA after the season to boot.

I could be wrong, but I'm not totally convinced that Peluso is automatically the odd man out here. With guys like Ponikarovsky, Wellwood, and Miettinen all set to be UFA's I'm sure they will garner plenty of interest as the trade deadline approaches. One or more could be moved.

What is the status of Miettinen anyway? How serious is his injury? Is he close to coming back or will he be placed on LTIR?

Another possibility is perhaps some playoff teams looking for depth are inquiring about Thor.

There seems to be plenty of possibilities with the excess of bodies around the team right now.


As for the Tangradi trade itself, I'm not against it by any means as it was just a 7th rounder given up. I think it's a matter of bringing in another body because of the possibility of others being moved out. We'll know in the coming weeks how the chips will fall.

Tangradi needed a change. He's got the upside of a decent 3rd line guy IMO, but 3rd line was never an option for him in Pittsburgh. He was either going to stick on the top 2 lines, or leave. His style of play doesn't fit our bottom 6. He doesn't throw his weight around enough for that / isn't fast enough on the fore-check.

Keep your expectations muted and if he surprises, you guys will have gotten a decent player for nothing basically. If he doesn't then people will be fine with it and you still didn't give up much. The problem with our fan base is we were so hard up for "the next power winger" that many assumed it was going to be him, even though there was no logical reason to assume that. He had some big numbers in Junior hockey and some nice streaks in teh AHL but he's never put it together at the NHL level (in the role we attempted for him, which was to basically be another Chris Kunitz).

Best of luck to him and your team... except this Friday.

Truffles are found in poo, no?

Seriously though, I wouldn't be surprised if this is nothing more than an AHL pickup, hence the draft pick instead of waivers. The Ice Caps are hurting right now.

This was kind of what I was thinking. Give him a chunk of games in the NHL. If he proves he's an NHLer, great. If he doesn't, he'll probably pass right through waivers. In the AHL he's a proven producer and would help the Caps a lot.

Sure he maybe a dink and play the kind of game people hate, but if you had him on your team you would be grateful. Gotta love guys who are effective at getting under the opposition's skin and drawing penalties, yet still putting upwards to 15 goals and 30 points on the third line, year-in and year-out. Educate yourself before making comments Gm0ney.
He's allowed to rag on any Penguins player he wants. This is the Jets forum.

Malkin is garbage. See? It's that easy.

I dont mind it. He's alright, nothing to write home about about, but could easily be that low risk high reward kinda thing that we all love so much!

Love this for the Jets. The Jets have a player or two who was once highly regarded and then fell out of favor (Wheeler for one) and then came back to be good. Winnipeg now becomes Tangradi's path to hockey salvation.

If any other teams looking for a good GM to manage your waiver wire, stock your AHL team or procure players who one day might play on your 4th line, then Chevy's your man!

Quick question
How many NHL teams have been GM for?

It's like Chevy wants the team to resemble his own height. And if Tangradi is intended for St. John's would he not have to go through waivers first? Too bad we didn't flip Machacek for him. If the stories are true about Macho's attitude then what he is he still doing around the farm club?

I disagree with everyone saying he didn't use his size. For me the knack on ET is that he had a bad combination of lack of foot-speed and "hockey IQ"/positioning.

He needs some gametime in the near future to see if he can mold his game in the pros (maybe in the mold of Holmstrom?). I hate to say it, but he's looked like a career AHL'er to me though.

Good luck in Winnipeg though Big Dog!

Why don't you tell us what you would do as Jets GM. You know, something realistic.

At least Cheveldayoff is actively trying to improve organizational depth without giving too much up. Some stuff works some doesn't. The James Wright pick up looks pretty damned good right now and it cost us nothing. Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't.

I guess you are waiting for him to get a top 6 forward for a 7th rounder?

He's no longer exempt from waivers, so this can't be a move for St. John's.

Anyway, strikes me as another Chevy special: low risk and probably low reward move. Will be interesting to see where he slots in. Wright seems to have cemented a spot for the foreseeable future, so perhaps Poni will be the odd man out?

A meh move for me. May amount to something, may not. I kind of doubt it as he's been around a bit and never found his groove. We'll see, you never know.

Wonder who we're getting rid of? I think Peluso is the most obvious choice.

Some cushion for an Antropov deal? Very similar skill sets.

I like the Tangradi pickup a lot. Never hurts to have another big body around. We'll need him to do a bit more than just bump and grind, and he had trouble scoring and getting in on the action in Pittsburgh (which is obviously concerning) but it's a no-harm pickup for Winnipeg at this point. It'll be interesting to see where he plays. I'm assuming he'll get in right away.
