What to do with Tatar?

Tatars looking pretty hot right out of the gate this year. Although hes the consensus 2nd banana to Nyquist for getting the nod to the big club (should a season actually come to fruition) what "should" be the play with this kid?

Hes not going be be an NHL superstar but I see an effective tweener 2nd/3rd liner with speed, work ethic, and pretty good offensive instincts. Will he marinate for another year then get the nod? Will he want to remain with the organization if he produces and works hard all year to no avail? Do we bring him on fulltime as the 13/14 guy and see what he can do with bigger minutes when the inevitable injuries show up?

Personally, id like to see the last option. IMO its time to see what hes got at the top level - this could also allow Kenny to let Cleary go to UFA easier and use his leftover cap-space towards something.
