That's why. Other than Hossa, Sid had never had anything close to a quality winger until they brought in Kunitz and Guerin. Tangradi is projected to be a top-line winger. So why not put him on the top line? It's not like he won't see any time with Geno anyway since Bylsma likes to juggle his lines a lot (assuming he's still head coach in 2 years). In his 3 years here, Geno has had better wingers on his line than Sid, for the most part. Besides, if Caputi develops into the scorer they think he will, then there's Geno's full-time scoring winger.
