Take Two: Alex Tanguay Signs 1-Year/$1.7M Deal With CGY

It's official--Alex Tanguay has returned for a second go-around with the Flames after the two parted ways at the 2008 NHL Draft, when a rift between Tanguay and then head coach Mike Keenan forced the winger out of town. Both Darryl Sutter and Jarome Iginla have praised Tanguay's playmaking skills and lamented his absence--Iginla scored fifty goals in 2007-08 will Tanguay on his wing--and Sutter claimed that the Quebec native was skilled enough to win a scoring title. Tanguay himself scored a career-high 81 points in his first season with the Flames. While Tanguay's numbers have dropped off in his past two seasons (just 10-27-37 and -2 with Tampa last season, although he still managed 16-25-41 in only 50 games in 08-09 with the Candiens), he fits the bill as a left-winger and a top-six forward, and for just $1.7M, he could prove to be very good value. What do you think?
