Tatar's an effective player, but I wouldn't ask him to do what I'd ask Gator to do, or vice versa.
It is BS.
Datsyuk or Zetterberg or Flip are better on the wall and create more space for teammates than Cleary and Abdelakder.
They are no different at all.
If we had right winger with skill, instead of Abs, he'd create a TON of space.
That's why Tatar makes sense on Datsyuk's wing
And come on... Cleary is what? 6'0? 200 pounds? Abdelkader is 6'1 210?
These aren't big guys
