lol Yeah, you're right, how dare a 10 year vet like Tatar take advantage of a kid starting his first NHL game.... And only a 22 year-old goal tender would have let that one in. Any other goalie in the NHL would have stopped that ho-hum move.
Tartar is fine in our bottom 6. It is starting to look like he may have earned a spot there for the rest of the season. I think Babcock would like to play Nyquist and Tartar but they are both somewhat light. Tartar is the thicker of the two and has been showing he can play the grinding style that Babcock believes will help the wings win. He looks better than Nyquist in that role so far imo. He provides just enough grit while giving our bottom 6 another weapon. Right now there are not alot of weapons there. Eaves when he plays has a good shot. Helm's speed is still out of the lineup. Tartar gives us a nasty Hossa esc wrister/snap shot. He looks dangerous out there.
Let him expose the easy defenders for a bit. He can obviously play in the top six but he has the work ethic to be a good bottom 6er.
