Because he's a damn good hockey player, that deserves to be an everyday player on this team... or he's going to be a start elsewhere, rather than here.

Absolutely agree. Tatar has really clicked with Abby and Andersson too the past few games. I'm fine with a third line role for now -- Nyquist and Brunner flourished there with Andersson and Tatar can do the same. I don't see Tatar being scratched any time soon again with the way he has been playing.

Helm and Tatar play with drive and passion, Franzen does not(wish Babs could find a way to motivate him)

If he does get benched anytime soon then we've got some serious other questions to answer.

I think our energy would have been totally different if we had thrown away last night's game. That win coupled with Helm's return is the best kind of motivation, the kind that comes from internal confidence and passion.

Well, in a way I get it... we like to play solid, winning hockey. Young players make mistakes. Let them learn in the system the right way, our way, and let them ripen. To do that, you have to hang onto the vets who know the system, you know limit the mistakes. Young guys are always going to make the mistakes, we want to limit that. However I agree, at some point in time... you need to move on. That time is now, actually it was last year IMO for some of these older guys on the roster, and these young guys ready to move it on up, before we loose them.

Dekeyser one timer from point went wide and goalie either pulled groin stretching to make save or it actually clipped him and hit him somewhere.

whoa what happened to edm's goalie?

I'd guess groin related as he came across to face that wide shot from Dekeyser? Seemed weird...
