I think the jury is still out on tambellini. I know everyone in the organization seems to be giving him chance after chance but I don't think he's been put in the right spot. He obviously has a confidence problem which is why i would like to see him with weight and guerin. They are the two that probably understand what he's feeling and could create the best scoring chances for him. Tams a sniper and I havent seen much of a pysical edge to his game so i think it's unfair to ask him to get dirty in the corners. It's just not him. Give him a line with them and some serious pp time and I do believe he'll come around by the half way point(pray sooner) If not then at least you gave him the best opportunity and if you eventually part ways and he goes to let's say a vancouver and he becomes a star... wait where have i heard this?

its priceless.
Excuse? For who and for what? I said this injury policy sucks and has been beyond stupid. I also think and have said that the organiation has been dead wrong having Rick on the bench before he is ready to play. So- putting the blame where it belongs is an "excuse" in your mind? For WHO???

Your response to me is an absolute joke. Next time try reading my post before responding, you might look less stupid.
