IMO, a canon TB would lead to more dynamic gameplay.
The current TB lets you hold someone in place, removing their defence bonus. That's all.
Linking the target ship to yourself would only negate the movement defence at the cost of your own movement defence. You could still hold someone in place, but you would also have the option to move someone.
