He's my favourite prospect n the wings system & after a bit of a down year by his standards I'm hoping for a big tourney.
Tatar is a huge piece of the changing-of-the-guard that is currently happening with the Slovak National Team. With their development system in recovery mode and their NHL stars nearing 30 and above, he will be relied upon heavily to score for this team.
Slovakia is really counting on Tatar, Panik, Jurco and Tvrdon to develop into top 6 forwards going forward. They are really the only hope Slovakia has going forward offensively. I think when these guys play for the NT they'll be given more important roles than they're use to.
