Id like to see Tatar step up good speed,great hands and scoring touch. If cap goes up by 2 mill this line-up puts us just under i think

Franzen-Zetterberg-Holmstrom
Hudler-Datsyuk-Bertuzzi
Cleary-Filppula-Tatar
Burish-Abdelkader-Helm
Draper

Lidstrom-Rafalski
Kronwall-Stuart
Lilja-Ericcson
Kindl

Right now, I'd say Kindl just because of the possible needs at defense. If we don't re-sign Lilja or if Ericsson has another sub-standard year, Kindl has the shortest path.

What kind of year did Tatar have? (I shamefully do not follow the AHL). I'm excited about this kid, but is he close to NHL ready or "over-ripe" as Kenny calls it?

Tatar won't see a single game next season. Kindl and Ritola are out of options so they'll both be in the line-up. /end thread.

Exactly. Mursak will probably see some call-up time with the big club, maybe Emmerton.

I'd love to see Tatar make it but he's only 19 so he'll have to force his way onto the team in the preseason first... Holland won't give him much wiggle room to play with because he has so much time left to grow in GR.

dead on.

Tatar will not see a SINGLE minute of NHL, regular season ice time until 2012 at the earliest...

All I have to say about Holland and our off-season:

Here in this thread

Here in this one as well

Here in this one too

and finally

Here


Holland is a damn good GM. period.

I just hope Tatar doesnt come in and rip it up in pre-season and then gets sent back down probably will kill his confidence in himself.

I really wanna see Emmerton get some games next year. He's got the hockey sense to be a great player he just needs to put it all together.

Kenny and Babs have both said in the past that the best players will get to play, so we'll wait and see if they back this up. For those of you who ahve stated that Tatar will not see a min let alone a game this coming season, don't put your house on it! The Wings front office are big on this kid and they will bring him up for a stint this season, just to see how he handles it. By all comparison's, (Hudler with speed) and that will do for me. All this let them learn in the A for a few years, well some kids it will help, but occasionally you get a guy where you have to give them the ball early. I think Tatar falls into that catergory.

I totally agree i think guys like Helm and Abby it was good for it let them complete there game at both ends,but Tatar is a sniper and you can only get so much better playing against other AHL guys, then you have to step up and run with the big dogs. whats that saying something about if you wanna be the best.......well i think that applies to Tatar, i might say one more season in the AHL if he cant make it this year is fine but next season i think its time to get him in young. Thats really the only problem i have with the Wings, letting guys stay in the AHL to long
