The Wings keep Tatar in Grand Rapids instead of sending him to the OHL. Yet 2 games in and he hasn't been on the roster yet, not sure if this is what Kenny and Co wanted from the
farm team or is Thomas injured, anyone have any info on the situation.

You don't think that Babs is gunna want him kicking his heels in the pressbox at Van Andel
for much longer, this kid needs to be playing regular games. Unless there gunna fastrack him to the Joe!!
"What are you guys doing?" Reggie Dunlop
"Putting on the foil coach" Jeff Hanson
"Yeah, every game, you want some coach?" Steve Hanson
"Er, no. No thanks guys." Reggie Dunlop
"Make sure they don't leave the bench!" Reggie Dunlop.

Notes: After the Wings returned from Sweden, they sent Daniel Larsson to Grand Rapids and Jordan Pearce to Toledo in the ECHL ... Toledo starts their season next weekend ... Justin Abdelkader was sent to the AHL after Detroit signed Brad May ... Tomas Tatar and Sebastien Piche were the two Detroit prospects scratched for Grand Rapids season opener ... Both will be in this weekend ... Tatar being a scratch doesn't count toward the 9 games he can play before he burns a year off his contract ... He will need to get onto a scoring line to avoid being sent to the OHL, where he would play for Plymouth.

Fraser also said he hopes to have rookies Tomas Tatar and Sebastien Piche make their pro debuts against Toronto.

So I guess they are scratching him just so that he can get used to the system, the new teammates, smaller ice etc before they start his 9 games....to give him a fair shot of staying in the AHL this year.

Would've liked to see him debut tonight, I think the Griffins could do with his offensive prowess too. I'm 99% sure he'll play in their next game.

Ken Holland: Hes (Mursak) a young guy, provides energy, can skate, hes a puck hound.

It's a long process. Throwing him in to see what happens isn't there intentions. It's part of the grooming process to get him used to the arena, the pace of play, environment, etc.
