        THREAD ETIQUETTE   1. Please search for an existing thread before posting. This forum can be very fast moving, so it's understandable if redundant threads are inadvertently posted. In such a case, please use the report feature to request removal of redundant threads.    2. Provide a clearly identifiable topic title so that users can readily understand the content. The title should include any and all teams involved, as well as player names or other personnel involved as appropriate.   3. All trades, signings, rumors and other news MUST include a linkable source. Simply posting the name of the source is not enough. Effort should also be made to copy and paste the full article, or at the very least the relevant portion of text from the source to the first post of the thread. Moderators may remove low-quality threads in favour of high-quality threads. 

      Affixed to the front of your title should be a label that identifies the type of transaction that is taking place. For all trades use [TRADE]. For all signings use [SIGNING]. For all waiver-wire transactions use [WAIVERS]. For all rumours use [RUMOUR].
      For articles or news items that don't fit into the above categories, affix an appropriate label of your choice such as [NEWS], [ARTICLE] or [MISC].   4. When the status of a thread changes a new thread can be created. The new thread should reflect the change and help focus the discussion on current events. e.g. Someone may create a new thread when a rumor becomes a trades. The old thread will be locked by the moderating team.    5. Do not misrepresent the contents of your thread or post false trades or rumors. Trolling will result in a permanent suspension.

[Rumour] Tampa and Toronto interested in Chris Tanev, low offers so far

While the big defensive fish being dangled ahead of the NHL’s 2018 trade deadline are offensive dynamos like Erik Karlsson and Mike Green, the Vancouver Canucks have seen interest continue to rise on one of their own rearguards as Feb. 26 draws near.  General managers around the league continue to inquire about Vancouver’s Chris Tanev, according to Sportsnet’s Elliotte Friedman, though it appears the Canucks aren’t keen on moving the 28-year-old for anything less than a significant return.

 

“He’s hurt right now, which could potentially complicate matters, but what I’ve been told is that the Canucks have told teams — including, I believe, Toronto — ‘If you’re serious, it’s going to take a special offer to do this,’” Friedman said during the Headlines segment of Hockey Night in Canada on Saturday.

 

“I think the Canucks realize still that even though they are rebuilding, you want to give your young players a chance. And you’ve got to be serious, really serious, if you want to get Tanev out [of Vancouver].”  After finishing with the second-worst record in the league last season, the Canucks have enjoyed a modest revival of sorts in 2017-18. While team-wide success continues to elude them, Vancouver has seen rookie Brock Boeser emerge as one of the most promising goal-scorers in the game, positioning himself as a Calder Trophy favourite with 27 tallies to his name thus far.

 

Tanev has followed suit with a modest improvement of his own, posting 11 points through 38 games this season after putting up 10 points through 53 games in 2016-17. Though that sum isn’t putting Tanev in the running for a Norris Trophy, it is enough to match the best points-per-game pace of the eight-year veteran’s career. 

 

The long-time Canuck has two more seasons left on his five-year deal, carrying a cap hit of $4.45 million and a modified no-trade clause, according to CapFriendly.

Curious what you guys think might be "a special offer" or the right price. It appears Jim Benning and Canucks management may be open to moving Chris Tanev if someone knocked their socks off with an offer. We have heard from the beginning of the year they intend on keeping Tanev to pair with Juolevi for his first season. I  would find a trade difficult to make unless the return was simply to good to refuse.  I feel bad for even posting this because Tanev has been such a warrior for us.  I hope he stays in the blue and green but if we can get a King's Ransom it would be nice to see him compete for a cup.

 

I know we have a lot of Chris Tanev topics out there. Feel free to merge this with another if you feel its to much. Just wanted to make sure this didn't slip through the cracks.

So he's not being shopped, but JB wouldn't hang up the phone if the offer was really good? Slow news day, eh? That could be said for almost any player on the team. 

This.

 

Obvious headline is obvious. Standard attention grabber.

I think teams have been calling on him for a couple seasons now.

Would like him to go to...

Winn, CBJ, Philly, NYI or(most likely) TBay.

I'd cheer him on to win a Cup(like Burr last yr)..so Bos, TO & Pitt are places I'd rather we avoided.

It seems like Benning is now at a stage where he is open to looking at what a return might look like.

Interesting because Lebrun said just a couple days ago that GMs who called about Tanev were told no, Benning isn't trading Tanev.

I suppose maybe Benning saying it would take a king's ransom could be interpreted by them as a "no".

As the seasons go on and Chris Tanev breaks down physically in a regular basis that team inquiring 2 seasons ago is much less likely to offer a kings ransom or have shifted their sights elsewhere.

 

I love what Tanev brings but he holds more value to Vancouver now, maybe im wrong and Toronto or somebody trades a top prospect, top pick and roster piece?

 

But Vancouver needs to draft another highend defenseman or two this draft and keep a veteran presence to help them develop.

Tampa Bay seems logical. Tanev has playoff experience that could help them especially through the later rounds, which is where I project them going.

Obviously, any player can be had for the right price...

 

I think if we re-sign Gudbranson and considering how he and Edler help each other, I think the following top 4 would be pretty good:

 

Edler-Gud

Juolevi-Tanev

 

Unless we get Dahlin and majority of new comers exceed expectation, I think we have one more top 10 draft pick coming in 2019 but this defence should be good enough to keep us decent.

Jvr + 1st rnd + prospect

 

tanev

His contract is done this season. All he would do is worsen our draft pick. Plus lou said he wasn't available.

Tanev has no later round experience. He played one SCF as a rookie but only because it was an emergency, and he did it thanks to the 2011 core. He has never led a team anywhere past game 6 of the 1st round.

Well I wouldn't discount that experience of being in a SCF. Bieksa had high praise for him.
