Imo, Tatar and Jarnkrok are NHL ready but at the same time not ready to be impact players. Depends what the definition of NHL ready is. The Wings obviously like the prospects to be ready to contribute to a winning team before putting them in, not just skate with them. But based on your and jaster's review, I sure hope we can get him signed. A big defensive guy close to NHL ready would be a welcomed addition to our prospect pool.
