[Article] Former Canuck Tambellini says Tanev 'would thrive in KHL or Swiss League'

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.

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.

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.

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.
