Tangradi is an average skater in an organization that wants great skaters. Seems like they forgot about Homer..... he plays the same type of game. Most of his goals have come from 15 ft or closer to the net on rebounds and deflects. Something the RW's need badly!
Yup, sometimes deterimination and some good old fashioned toughness to stand in front of the net and take a pounding can make up for below-average skating. Homer was never pretty when he went into the corners or endured a dozen cross-checks while screening the goalie but he always seemed to do a damn fine job. I'd like to see Tangradi get a shot at least, would be a shame to see him go elsewhere and have success when he was right under our nose this year and we're in need of that type of player again. I don't seen too many Holmstrom type players coming up... even if we do have an Axel Holmstrom in the system lol.
