The Season Outlook For Tomas Tatar

from Ansar Khan of Mlive, He is coming off a breakout season when he provided some much-needed offense. That experience, and being in the lineup from the start of the season, should make him better and more productive this season. He spent a good chunk of the season on the Kid Line with Riley Sheahan and Tomas Jurco. They had good chemistry and might remain intact, unless...

Why did this atrocity occur? Simple; the Red Wings organization is loyal to its veterans. In this case, too loyal. According to...
