Tatar deserves a chance to play in the league at this point and he still has value.

For the record a huge fan and he has fixed the weaknesses in his game that made him a top 6 or bust player. He could easily slot in on the third line with Helm if injuries get it to that stage this year. A very useful top 9 player if they ever get around to wanting to see it in the front office or coaching staff. I don't think Babcock is pushing real hard for him either before all the anti-Holland crowd shows up on this.
I'm fine with him in GR this year, but if he doesn't make the team next year, something in management needs to change. Next year is the perfect opportunity for a youth movement while, at the same time, improving the team.
