Is this some fairy tale I'm living through? Am I in Denver? So...forget putting Tatar--arguably the most creative offensive player on the Wings the last month or so--on a line with Datsyuk.  That's just crazy talk.  You NEED Abdelkader on that line, Mike. That's sarcastic and it was inappropriate.  One of you needs to step forward and take responsibility for your childish, short-sighted blasphemy.  Oh, that was me.  Nevermind.
