I'm guessing you guys missed the second half of the season and the playoffs. Wish Tambo the best tho.

Could he not get a gig in the NHL? How much will he get in Swiss? Can't be more?

Terrible player.

Can only shoot and doesn't have enough skill to get himself into position to shoot.

Towards the end of his Islanders career and from what I watched in Vancouver he was trying to transform himself into a bit of a sparkplug but that just doesn't work for him.

Yeah his career was a tribute to the incredible shrinking man as his projected role just kept diminishing until it was finally nothing.

He's probably gonna be making the same money he would get over here. Just for exemple, Rafael Diaz, which just signed with the Habs, was making 650K at 25.. Don't forget that the tax rate in Switzerland is ridiculously low.

He was actually pretty solid as a bottom 6 player. Very effective defensively and surprisingly physical, so I'm surprised he didn't get picked up somewhere. I think he needs some skill work on scoring some dirty goals on rebounds and one timers. I don't think he'll be the top 6 player he was thought of as, but with some development, he could become a brilliant tenacious 3rd liner who can score better than most.

Well, if it wasn't official before, the Kings really botched the 2003 draft.

He'll be a beast in Switzerland, but doesn't have the size or tenacity to translate in the NHL. High skill level and works hard though. Good luck to him.

The Oilers traded down from Zach Parise to get MA Pouliot and JF Jacques. I feel Kings pain.

When Tambellini went on that scoring streak early/mid season for the Nucks I'm so glad I dropped Sergei Kostytsin for him on my stat based sim league team
