Free Agency is not that far away. But we keep plugging along here on Scouting the Market. Read the other Scouting the Markets here. Next up: Alex Tanguay
Alex Tanguay is a 30 year old winger who spent last season with Tampa Bay. He wasn’t incredibly productive, putting up a line of 10-27-37, but most think he wasn’t a good fit in Tampa. He’s used to scoring 20+ goals and netting 40+ assists.
The 6-1, 191 pound winger is not a defensive player at all, but playing alongside Gaborik will get his offensive numbers to his previous levels.
Assuming no other signings, here’s what the lines could look like:
That’s not bad. Tanguay will provide a much needed boost to the offense. He’ll come cheap, too. He made $2.5 million last season, but after his season last year, I’d expect that to come down to the $2 million area. For a one year deal, that’s not bad.
What do you think of Tanguay? Worth the price of admission? Let us know in the comments.
