Tomas Tatar understands that his name could come up in off-season trade rumors.

"It's part of being a hockey player," Tatar said. "This team probably will need some changes. I don't know who is going to be affected by that. But we have to do something different to get back on track." He had a disappointing year, while falling from career highs of 56 points and 29 goals in 2014-15 to 45 points and 21 markers this past campaign. If he is still with the Red Wings or elsewhere next year, Tatar will be looking to get back on track himself.
