Filppula is most likely walking this summer. Datsyuk's most likely gone the next summer. Most likely we're going to be down 2 top 6 forwards by the 14-15 season.

Having Tatar and Nyquist up this year over guys like Cleary/Miller/Eaves helps make that transition easier, while not really hurting the team much at all in the present.

You guys have to look a couple steps ahead here. Having Dan Cleary and Drew Miller playing isn't going to make us any better in 2-3 years. Same with signing Bertuzzi and Sammy who are both past their expiration date. These guys should have had spots at the start of the year.

Just like we missed the boat on playing Smith on a roster with Lidstrom, let's not miss the boat on having tatar and nyquist learn from dats and z. Every minute they can spend up learning from those guys is way more valuable than playing against crap in the AHL.
