According to Jock Wilson on QR77 last night. Taratukhin is either a #1 or #2 centre for the Flames and the fact that he coudl be signed means Tanguay won't have to play centre because Taratukhin can fill that role.
Talk about setting up fans for dissapointment. Not sure what Jock was smoking.
Even without Taratukhin on the NHL roster, there's a logjam. If Tanguay can move to his more natural LW, that creates a more specific one at LW. Unless Nystrom has an outstanding camp, he's most likely ticketed for another year (with injury call-ups to be expected) at Omaha, in practically any scenario.

Unless he's capable of those bone-jarring hits, that Sabres fans came to love Peca for, his unside isn't quite that high.
