Tatar is miles ahead of where Nyquist was at his age; he might even be the better player right now.

The question is... if Brunner, Nyquist, and Tatar are all deserving of spots in the top six/nine...

Do we go with this?

Franzen/Datsyuk/Tatar
Nyquist/Zetterberg/Brunner
Cleary/Filppula/Samuelsson
Abby/Helm/Tootoo
Miller
Mursak
Eaves LTIR
Emmerton LTIR

(yes, I specifically left out "The Todd".)
The problem with is that you know damn well that Babcock isn't going to start a rookie on D and 2 rookies and a Swiss League vet up front.

The problem is that the Wings are bottlenecking their prospects
