Probably since Zetterberg was a rookie
I think if he spent the rest of the season on Datsyuk's line, he'd get calder consideration.
I honestly expect this kid to turn into a 35 goal man one day. Maybe in the next 2-3 seasons.
He's a hard worker. He's effective on the boards. He makes plays. He attacks the net. I'm very impressed with this kid.
I don't think he'll be on the level of Zetterberg or Datsyuk...but I can see him on the level of a Franzen
I can see it, I mean, in the small sample size we've seen this season, Tatar has been the 3rd best forward we've had on the team. We need to bump Abdelkader down and move Tatar up to play with Datsyuk. Datsyuk has been trying to force plays and do it all himself because his linemates have been completely useless. Giving him Tatar on his wing would give him a tenacious young player that plays hard against the boards, can also create space, and most importantly, he can finish plays.
