Tatar wants out anyway though, he's pretty much made that clear. He's threatened more than once to bolt back to the KHL if not brought up, which I completely don't fault him for being subject to such an incompetent and disconnected GM, but nonetheless I think he's already decided he rather play somewhere else.
One thing we have a plethora of is forwards, might as well take a risk and get a guy with a killer right shot from the point.
Regardless, wouldn't save our dumpster fire of an offseason though.
No he hasn't. When commenting on his contract earlier this summer he said...
"On Friday we'll begin negotiating a contract. It's tough to talk about it. Detroit's my priority. I'd say that it's 90% that I'll stay there, only if a fantastic offer came from another team, that Detroit didn't want to match. Everything depends on negotiations. I can't go below the price that a similar player in the league will have earned. But I like the team, and I'll settle there. It's all business, though, and the team could always replace me."
Doesn't sound like a guy that's dying to bolt to another team or the KHL.
