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.
Patience, grasshopper; wait until this half-season is over and see what happens during the off-season. Tatar is a legit top-6/9 NHL forward, and depending on who leaves and if Brunner pans out, he could easily be in the mix along with Nyquist for 2013/14 (assuming there are no injury call-ups this year).
