A little recruiting act by Tambo there…. MG just needs to get Tanev done before he bolts to Russia. Even though he is Canadian, he does have Russian parents so it is quite a realistic possibility that he does that.

Well, if they can afford to pay him more, and he wants to live in a crap hole country, adios.

Let him burn a year over there. Play Corrado. Sign 2-3 significant UFA's. Profit.

What is the deal with Tanev? How much could he be possibly asking for that we wouldn't pay? I would say 3 years 2m sounds good. any thing more then that then tanev can go.

If the kid had size, then yeah, he'd have more leverage. As is, he is a safe player, but his ceiling isn't that high, so I'm not sure why his agent is being so greedy.

Tanev's not even worth Smith's contract in Detroit. But Detroit manages to sign these guys to reasonable deals. We do too now and then.

Trade him right F"/$%?& now!

Not like he's going to become our top 1-2 dman anyways. And Garrison, Edler, HAmhuis and Bieksa are going to do just a good or better than Tanev, which is fine because that why we pay them that money.

Use that money to sign Ablerts, Fistric or Murray and our 3rd pairing will be just fine with Corrado/Weber.

No he's a better option the all on your list, at this point we don't know how much he's asking.

I like it, go play in the KHL, enjoy the full experience, Borsch, perogies. Vcr keeps his rights until I believe 2017 ( man that's a lot of Borsch ) and when he wants to come back he'll be maybe more ameniable to the NHL experience. Mean time Corrado over takes him on the depth chart.

His father was heavily involved before the appointment of an agent and I suspect still is, can you say Hodgson Mk2

No problem letting Tanev take a few years in KHL. Players like Rafalski, Giordano have gone over seas for several seasons before coming back, to become solid NHL players.

Honestlly with the emergence of Corrado, Tanev can I dare say is expendable.

All these assumptions and speculations are laughable. There have been no reports from either side of this negotiation. Before you completely trash the guy, along with Switzerland and Russia, could you just exercise some patience and wait until the beginning of the season?

The fear of rejection around here is incredible.

Tambo has a secure job in the Swiss League ... OF COURSE Tanev would thrive there...

KHL? He'll survive but by no means thrive. A handful of good players in the K these days that would absolutely manhandle and dominate Tanev...

The difference is Tambo can't get a job in the NHL whereas Tanev is guaranteed a starting position

I'm pretty sure it was said that Tanev would have an out clause in his KHL contract if he ever signs there. It's not like he'll be there forever.

Exactly, which is why I don't think he'll leave.

I'm sure a lot of NHL players would thrive overseas if it is indeed the best league in the world.

Just some sad attempt by his agent to make MG more willing to overpay.

Who knows what's truly going on but it seems to me that Tanev has over played his hand and is too stubborn to change. If he thinks the Khl is the best thing for him good luck to him, all that will get him is a crappy rep with canuck fans.

Except that ur blacklisted by all NHL GMs as a player who isn't committed to your team especially when he's proven nothing and is only 22 years old

Would they really pay him more than 1.3-1.5 mil in the KHL or Swiss league?

How is that a better option?

For the KHL one would ask...would they even actually pay him?

There's numerous guys that have come back to NA after being stiffed and threatened by their teams according to reports.

He's out for 6 months (which will hinder his development) and he really needs that development. There's already worries that he won't translate to the NHL and he'll end up a huge ass bust.

There are plenty of solid defensive UFAs out there that can do what Tanev does and more..

Tanev is going to be the new Hodgson. :lol:

I wouldn't ovepay for him...he's nothing special. He's just another stay-at-home defender. Saying that, I still hope he signs soon since we developed him and all that. Ph, and he has top 4 potential IMO.
