EDIT: Haha, apparently I was too excited to write more information in the thread title. Any way to edit titles?

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.

Tangradi isn't that good, but he could still be a decent 3rd or 4th liner.
Surprised he couldn't have fetched more.

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 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.

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.

Not in the top-6.

I agree that Pitt had no use for him on their roster, and there are other guys out there who could likely help more than he could this year. This could be a win/win for Pitts and the Jets.

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.

Would the Penguins be interested in Petr Sykora again ?

Maybe. It certainly seems like Zach Boychuk isn't cutting it and Beau Bennett isn't ready yet.

They outbid someone with a 7th?

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

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.

Either way, they were going to waive him. He's been a healthy scratch in 8 of their 13 games and they had to clear a roster spot so Letang could come off the injured reserve list.

A 7th round pick is better than nothing.

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

Understand is probably still over in his thread about all the size the Leafs added trying to convince people that's the reason for their success. He'll see this eventually and then go look at Tangradi's stat sheet and automatically think big=tough and gritty like he did with Barker and wail about how we didn't pick him up.

It seems that the Pens are going to give Beau Bennett a shot after all.
