I'm excited to see Tatar get a chance. I think he can definitely spark this team.
However, I think the thing this team lacks is a player with size and forechecking ability coupled with offensive talent (or at least somebody like Parise who is not small but fast and tenacious). Alothough, a lot of our lack of forechecking is attributable to our D's inability to break out I think. But players like Fraznen and Bert are slow and can't get to the puck fast enough. Our third line is the opposite of what a third line should be. They need to be able to win puck battles, and to do that they need to be fast, tenacious, and create turnovers. Helm is the key, but he needs other guys that can score and skate. Cleary/Bert/Miller are not the answer to that.
Like many have said, a third line of Nyquist-Helm-Tatar would give us speed and offensive ability.
