Tatar frustrated; says he will only play in NHL when contract done

18 April 2013 - 11:18 AM



Tatar is speaking about his frustrations in his latest interview


Google translate:




"In February and March I was in the first team in Detroit played eighteen matches. I am convinced that I have it, so I got on a regular basis in the NHL. Well I had to go back to Grand Rapids. It's disappointing, "admitted Tatar.



"I grabbed the chance, I did well. I had the great pleasure of hockey, "said the native of Dubnice five weeks in the NHL. In the eighteen matches scoring four goals and three assists. Detroit maintained a progressive place to play off.


"I am convinced that weighed up my two-way contract," explained why in March ended in the NHL.


"To not have to move to Grand Rapids player with one-way contract, which would then have to pay the full amount at the farm, showed me. It's business. "



"I want to play for Detroit, which has overall pick, but if they will not want me, then for any other club," added advised of this season.

"I'm not going to farm it. And when in my contract expires in 2014, for a further period will sign only a one-way contract. "


Jim Nill's future

ESPN Insider has a new article up





Top 10 GM candidates for this offseason



1. Jim Nill, Red Wings
In February, colleague Pierre LeBrun reported that Nill's contract includes a six-week out window in which he can leave the Red Wings starting this offseason. The bit of flexibility in his personal services contract with the Ilitch family is something rebuilding teams should take advantage of in the summer. There's not an NHL executive more prepared and ready to run his own team than Nill. He has encyclopedia-like knowledge of every young player already in the NHL or on the way in the next few seasons and the Red Wings' ability to stay competitive without the assistance of first-round picks near the top of the draft is a credit to his ability to identify and develop talent.


"He's got tremendous gut instincts based upon his playing day career and 20ish years of player assessment," wrote Red Wings GM Ken Holland in an email. And there's not a more quality individual in the league than Nill. "He treats people and the game with respect," Holland said. Detroit's CBA expert and salary-cap manager Ryan Martin is another strong mind who deserves consideration, especially with his background on the other side of the table when he worked as an agent with Kurt Overhardt.


If someone has insider, can you tell us if that's the most they have about Nill? If you don't mind, you can share the other 9 also!


What do you guys think? Would Nill leave the organization, or would he wait it out for the GM position in Detroit?
