Chris Tanev. This kid's coming along nicely.
Decent passing ability.
I don't get those who say he'll be a bottom pairing D-man at best.


I'm with ya. His passing is more than decent and he's def not a bottom pairing d-man. Pronman did his prospect report and said, last yr, Tanev is a top 4 d-man on most NHL teams. Due to Vans depth, he was held down. His underlying #'s say he's already a top 4 d-man on any team. With more time in the minors and ability work work on his offense, I really would like to see this kid next to Edler next season. I think he's exactly the type of partner Edler needs at even strength.

I dont see him beating out Jason Garrison to get on the second pairing. When there's an injury though its nice to have Ballard or Tanev to step up.

Tanev's best skill is to quickly get to a puck and effectively pass it up the ice, out of pressure and heading in the direction of the offensive zone. Last year we were having trouble getting the puck out, it was stunting our offense, and we called up Chris and immediately the team improved. He is a beaut!

But I do question him in a "stopper role?" He had trouble doing just what I stated above on the top defensive match up pairing with Hamhuis in game 1 versus L.A. Too much relentless pressure from Brown etcetera. But considering his passing, overall poise and smart position play; it actually lends to a specialist role with Edler?

If we further specialize our D, like we do with granting offensive zone starts for the Twins, his solid position play and passing might make it a natural as a specialist offensive pairing (and Garrison could play with Edler on the PP)?

- Hamhuis / Bieksa plays top defensive match up and PK
- Edler / Tanev take top offensive draws
- Garrison / Ballard plays 2knd defensive match up and secondary offensive starts.

Really it becomes a top 6 versus top 4 and spreads the minute, but allows each pair ideal match ups...

I don't see him beating Bieksa out of his PP slot either. Bieksa - Garrison on the right and hamhuis - Edler on the left. Tanev - Ballard will the the 3rd pairing with opportunity to fill in during penalties and injuries. Since the season will probably written off it gives Tanev and K-Conn a real opportunity to cement their status with the Canucks. I also like Sauve as a shot to make the big club.

Any latest news on Chris Tanev, if he's getting closer to re-signing with the Canucks?

There were rumors that he re-signed for 3 or 4 years, but the sources weren't credible.

I would imagine they get something done in the next week or two.

Still not signed as of August 5th. Something has to happen soon. At least there haven't been any offer sheets as some here feared.
