Tinordi looked good. He's looking mature out there. Threw his body at the right time and made some nice defensive plays.

I just realized something...

Gallagher.. Gally
Markov.. Marky
Subban.. Subby
Price.. Pricy
Gorges.. Gorgy
Plekanec.. Pleky

... Tinordi... Tinny?

Is it me, or "Tinny" is an ironically PERFECT nickname for Tinordi?

For me, what sets Tinordi apart from some of the other project D mentioned in this thread is attitude and demeanour. Tinordi is a winner and always has been. For die-hard OHL followers like myself, who witnessed first hand how much he improved in a short span, it just screamed that this was a kid destined to be a good pro.

He has a very good head on his shoulders and knows when to ramp up the intensity and knows when to calm the game down. He is much more a game-controller than Komisarek or O'Byrne could ever dream of being.

At 20, he'll have some mistakes and bad games. And the playoffs could be a roller coaster for him. But I guarantee we have a really good one in 3 years.

I think a taller Craig Ludwig would be a better comparison. But then again, about 70% of posters have no idea who I'm talking about.

Good comparison. Although, I remember Ludwig's effectiveness dropped after the league ruled shin pads couldn't be wider than goalie pads.

Chelios/Ludwig was the meanest pairing I remember since the 80's. We don't really have a Chelios in the pipeline, though.

Mean AND good is a really tough combo to find these days. You see some mean (Fraser, Murray, etc.) and lots of good (Karlsson, PK, etc.), but not much of both. If you get a Chara, Weber or the likes, you hang onto them.

We could have had McDo-Tinordi

Still hoping Beaulieu surprises and is not just a PP specialist.

Agreed.

Totally OT: Your username is Tim Wallach... but your avatar is Tim Raines... but you're on a hockey board. Is this some psychology experiment?

PK calls him "Tinner".

Wow....it wouldn't be a surprise if Beaulieu becomes more than a powerplay specialist...

I think what impressed me about Tinordi last night was his offensive awareness. This guy is way better with the puck then people give him credit. He consistently made clean, crisp passes to forwards up the ice and even did a good job of keeping the puck alive in the offensive zone. I especially liked how on one play at the point instead of just throwing it back wildly on net(where it would have been easily blocked), he kept his feet moving and got around a defender before taking a shot.

The seven hits were of course what i guess everyone is talking about, and i love that too. I just think its nice to know that you're not losing much offensively (over say a weber) by keeping Tinordi in the lineup. I'd already say he's already shown more offensive ability than Gorges.

Can he be a physical presence, too? That's the thing I'm wondering. Great potential otherwise.

I like how Tinordi skates to the blue line before making a pass instead of doing it from behind the net. Shows great poise.

LOL... it was kind of a jumbled homage to the Expos in generally, but I realized a bit late that the double Tims might be a tad confusing. I knew I should have gone with Archi Cianfrocco.

I don't think so, that's not his game. But not being a physical presence doesn't make him a powerplay specialist, he's going to be a solid 2 way d-man capable fo racking up points IMO. I think he's going to be able to play in all situations, even the penalty kill. His defense has improved so much over the years, who knows what his potential is.

Everyone thought PK needed more defensive seasoning in the AHL. One season was enough for him.

All we hear about Tinordi is how much longer big defencemen need than regular sized guys. Maybe we should consider that everyone is different and perhaps he's simply better than most guys with the same skillset. I always felt his game would translate much better to the pros. Hopefully he can keep it up.

Really impressed by Tinordi. There was one difference in his game compared to the last call up: He looks like he wants to play. No joke, his comportment on the ice gave off the impression that he wants icetime during the playoffs and will be damned if anyone takes it away. He had a lot of poise and confidence last night, to the point where even when he made an error, it didn't phase him. He has a great ability to box out plays along the boards behind the goal line and just below the hash marks. He just really needs to work on his gap control to the outside, but that will come as he adjusts to the speed of nhl forwards. He will be a player in the not so distant future. Really happy for him.

Statement game on Saturday for Tinordi. Time to show management that he's a valuable asset against bigger teams.

I know one tournament isn't a whole lot, but best on best in his age group and he looked like one of the best defenders in the tournament. Followed it with leading the OHL in +/- as a shutdown defenseman. Not much else you can ask of him, elevated his offensive game in the playoffs and led his team to winning the OHL playoffs. People should have been more worried about Beaulieu than Tinordi as he was putrid at the world juniors. Although partly due to the fact that they brought him to QB the PP and didn't give him any PP time.
He began swaying me with his WJC performance, however, I don't necessarily correlate success in that tournament with future NHL representation. Many jr's have excelled in a short tournament like that. Way too much weight put on a 2 week tourney.

Was at that game last night, Tinner played well he impressed me. He layed the body which was nice to see, made some pretty nice passes and wasn't too noticeable, which is good for his style of play.

I loved his play yesterday. That stop on the 2 on 1 was a thing of beauty.

I've got such a soft spot for defensive defensemen.

I've been a big Tinordi fan since we drafted him (mostly because I wanted to like the pick that everyone was bashing)...I really hope he continues to do well. He would fill a big, big need for us if he reaches his potential.

Not sure if a defensive defenseman will have a lot of opportunity to have the Bell Center chant his name, but it'd sound like a taping of the Springer Show if we did.
