Barely played. DB is not a fan of him, I dare say.

That was a fun one... Letang really changes the complexion of the team.

Great game by the Park line, those guys were in the offensive zone most of the time, nice to see them get rewarded

Can we all just agree that Tangradi is not an NHL player and let him get on with his life's work as.....well, whatever he plans to do after finishing a career in the AHL.

Bonne chance, petit chien!

Once he goes to a different team he's gonna turn into a 30 goal/60 point NHLer :scared:

Keep in mind that Ryan "Wheels of" Stone was also a 2nd round pick.

A coffee table may have been flipped. Excellent work by our coach to hoard his timeout. He's in line to succeed Jamie Dixon with that kind of game management.

Tangradi's obviously a great AHL player, thats still something to hang ur hat on. Maybe in another org he can get better chances and be really good on their NHL team, but it just isnt going to happen here. I remember in 09 telling people, the prize of the trade was Tangradi, and how Anaheim fans were so mad aboutthat part of the Whitney deal. Man, Im glad Kunitz proved me wrong.

Wouldn't beat Luke Fickell wasting 2 TO's on D against Michigan when we were only down 6. Ended up costing us the game when we got the ball back with only 1 TO and a blown spike call that wasted 15 seconds.

I think Tangradi could be a decent NHL player, but in some other system. Bylsma's system is just not right for him. He can deal with it in the AHL because of the extreme drop in tempo and talent but he can't in the NHL.

I think he's been sorta trying with the fights lately, but overall, I think he really lacks fire. At his size he should be a terror out there on every shift, causing havoc, crashing the net, getting in people's faces, but you need the right attitude for that. I'm not sure if he'll ever get it, because that's something you're probably just born with. He's too laid back, too non-confrontational. Skill is another issue, but if he at least played as hard as a hard-nosed 3rd or 4th liner, it would make a world of difference.
