      Forum-specific Rules   07/11/2017

      These are board specific rules for the Trades and Rumors forum designed to provide organization and a better experience for everyone. Please review these rules before posting new threads. 
        THREAD ETIQUETTE   1. Please search for an existing thread before posting. This forum can be very fast moving, so it's understandable if redundant threads are inadvertently posted. In such a case, please use the report feature to request removal of redundant threads.    2. Provide a clearly identifiable topic title so that users can readily understand the content. The title should include any and all teams involved, as well as player names or other personnel involved as appropriate.   3. All trades, signings, rumors and other news MUST include a linkable source. Simply posting the name of the source is not enough. Effort should also be made to copy and paste the full article, or at the very least the relevant portion of text from the source to the first post of the thread. Moderators may remove low-quality threads in favour of high-quality threads. 

      Affixed to the front of your title should be a label that identifies the type of transaction that is taking place. For all trades use [TRADE]. For all signings use [SIGNING]. For all waiver-wire transactions use [WAIVERS]. For all rumours use [RUMOUR].
      For articles or news items that don't fit into the above categories, affix an appropriate label of your choice such as [NEWS], [ARTICLE] or [MISC].   4. When the status of a thread changes a new thread can be created. The new thread should reflect the change and help focus the discussion on current events. e.g. Someone may create a new thread when a rumor becomes a trades. The old thread will be locked by the moderating team.    5. Do not misrepresent the contents of your thread or post false trades or rumors. Trolling will result in a permanent suspension. 

      SOURCES   The following source types are considered INVALID. Any links to posts or threads on other message boards Any links to personal blogs Any news heard on the radio that does not have a link to an audio vault or podcast Any news seen on television that does not have a link to online video Any news spread by word of mouth
      Additionally, certain sources may be be blacklisted due to poor credentials, clear traffic-mongering etc. Blacklisted sources will be posted here. 
      Thank you for your co-operation and please PM the Administrator or Moderators if you have any questions, concerns or suggestions regarding this forum.

[Trade] Eric Tangradi to Winnipeg for 2013 7th

Recommended Posts

Yeah, well, if you can't succeed when given an opportunity to play next to Crosby or Malkin then you pretty much lose all value.

wow 6'4 224ln 24yr old former 2nd round pick who hasnt been given a fair shot in the laegue yet goes for a 7th rounder.

I woulda traded for him too, good depth for the farm at the very least, he seems like a power forward maybe a late bloomer that could turn into a solid 3rd or 4th liner with his size

he has shown the ability to put up alright numbers in the AHL

I didn't know having two games on a line with Malkin and not succeeding makes you a bust.. ;)

Wouldn't be surprised if he turned out to be a guy like Bernier with a bit better hands

He had more chances than that last year. I wouldn't call him a bust either just that he had no more use to Pittsburgh. More than likely they just wanted to shed his contract so that they can offer a UFA a deal in the next few days.

I was able to view him twice this year with WBS and he did noting to establish himself in either game.

Highest bid doesn't always get the player.

Its not common for GM's to notify the entire league when they make a certain player available.Many times its just a GM picking up the phone and calling a buddy to ask for certain player.

He wouldn't be good depth for the farm. PIT was going to waive him, but traded him instead as some teams were interested in picking him up. Winnipeg obviously was the highest bidder.

At one point, Tangradi was considered the best prospect in hockey with a 8.5B on Hockey Futures. Another reason why people shouldn't base everything off what they read. Tangradi always had skating problems, but for whatever reason found ways to produce in and that skyrocketed his value. He's not a NHL player right now, but he's still young. Big power forwards don't usually get the NHL game until their late 20's, so it's not a complete bust yet. Pittsburgh rushed him, guy could use some time developing again. Now rather than being forced to play in a scoring role, the jets can be patients with him and slot him in a bottom six role.

They outbid someone with a 7th?

More like he called around and the first one who said deal got him.

Kid still has potential. I know he didnt perform with Crosby and Malkin, but I hope a change of scenery will spark his career
