I imagine Tarasenko would be playing a role similar to what Zucc is playing right now, if he'd even be playing at all. After a red-hot start, Tarasenko looked to be getting overwhelmed by the physical play and wasn't particularly good in the defensive zone. Combine that with not giving 100% every shift and you've got a recipe for Torts' doghouse. Obviously it's complete speculation but Torts has never shown an affinity for offensive wunderkinds that are defensive liabilities.

Sure, it'd be great to have a healthy Sauer too but when you're near the bottom in goals for, another shut-down d isn't what you need.
