Weird maneuvering by the Jets, basically amounting to Ponikarovsky for Tangradi and a 4th.
While Poni's boxcars looked pretty unimpressive, one of our posters mentioned that his goals per ES minute played is actually pretty impressive, somewhere on the order of 30th among LWers. From a non-stats perspective, he did some good things in the cycle game and in his own end, although he did seem a bit hesitant in going to the hard areas of the ice.
Ah well. Best of luck to him in New Jersey, hoping this flyer we've taken on Tangradi somehow pays off.
So all it took to get him was a 4th and a 7th for a big, physical, decently offensive player on a one year deal at very reasonable cost?
Well, there goes another opportunity missed by Tambellini. A power forward for that cheap is exactly what the Oilers could use. And given that he was traded to the same conference, there's a chance Edmonton could've even had him for a 5th and 7th.
