Toronto-Pittsburgh

I think it's safe to say that Eric Tangradi was given a big opportunity with Pittsburgh, and unfortunately for himself, failed miserably. I think on most teams, Tangradi could play a top 6 role, at the very least,top 9 role. Hense my proposal.

To Toronto: Eric Tangradi

To Pittsburgh: Colby Armstrong.

Toronto has alot of grit, some would say too much grit, not enough scoring. This deal would benefit both teams with Armstrong's past history in Pitt.

Can't take on the salary, although Pens fans probably won't admit Tangradi's potential is probably Armstrong + 15-20 points.

Yep he's played 10 games in the NHL. Time to give up on him and give him to Toronto...

So...Pens trade their best forward prospect for....an overpaid grinder? besides the team is FULL of grinders, Tangradi can get much more then that...Kadri for Dupuis?

Big opportunity? He was bumped down to the fourth line because Mark Letestu came out of the gates playing amazing hockey.


He wasn't going to stick in the top six all season anyway...the second Staal came back he was set to go down without lighting the league on fire. He's a 21 year-old power forward...most of them aren't established top sixers by this stage of their careers.


But by all means, lets trade him to Toronto for an overpriced grinder...not like we're drowning in grinders as it is or anything.


I love Colby, but I say it pretty emphatically when I say he has no place on this team.

#1. Pittsburgh can't take on that kind of cap hit.
#2. If Tangradi can't play in a top 6 alongside one of Crosby/Malkin, what makes you think he can play in a top 6 alongside Bozak/Grabovski?
#2a. If Tangradi isn't a top 6 player, then why is Toronto trading Colby Armstrong for him?

I just look at the stats of Eric Tangradi, this trade is vary one sided in Pittsburgh's favor.

This deal is so one sided that it would make everyone forget the fact that BB signed Colby this summer

Kadri's a better prospect then Tangradi (although I still think Tangradi is a good prospect), and Armstrong's a better player then Dupuis, so I'm not really sure what you're trying to get at?

Armstrong isn't much better than Dupuis, if better at all.

I disagree.

Colby can change the entire flow of the game with one hit. He can change the momentum in an instant. I don't see that from Dupuis. Offensively? Sure, there pretty close, although I still give the slight edge to Armstrong. But everything considered, I'd take Colby 10 times out of 10.

Our top prospect for your grinder so it's a counter. Your top prospect for our guy. Simple.

Yah I know that. But Kadri and Amrsrong are worth more then Dupuis and Tangradi. But, I do see what he's trying to get at now.

Armys cap hit is 3M and he does pretty much what Dupuis does but Dupuis is a UFA at seasons end and Army has 6M more to go in 2 more years while Pens can use that 1.4M next season to help pay for a winger on this team. No brainer for Pens who to take.

Thats y stats arnt everything, tangradi would have started the season in AHL is Asham was healthy. The plan all along was to let him play in AHL to work on a few things and brought back up around January. Tangradi isnt going anywhere especially not for 3mil Colby Armstrong

We don't want or need Colby Armstrong. As soon as he was traded, the Pens had as much success as any team in the league over the next 3 years.

I love the logic here.

He "failed" at a top 6 role...but on most teams, he could play a top 6 (or 9) role.

Makes total sense. If only we could get OILNATION in here to fractionalize this all out for us, you'd see it makes sense. And yes, I just said fractionalize.

This. I'm not a big fan of Tangradi at all. And, Pitts just don't need Armstrong.
