I don't know what to say other than Nyquist is NHL ready, whether he gets to start on a bottom line or a scoring line. Likewise with Tatar, of course.
Datsyuk spent a lot of time with Hull. Hurdler spent most of his early years with Filppula plus others. We currently have 6 4th line forwards, none of which are skilled, and the only quasi-skilled guy - Eaves - is maddeningly inconsistent.
Putting Tatar on a line with our current bottom 6 will render Tatars offensive skill at even strength largely ineffective. You can't do much with a bunch of stone-handed line mates.
