Chris Tanev Offersheet?
 
Let's say a team desperate for a young, skilled defender with solid upside and great poise takes a stab at Tanev with a really big offersheet ($3+ million, for instance). Do the Canucks match here? What's the threshold? I could see a divisional rival like Calgary or Colorado making a move like this. Who else would be looking at this kind of deal?

Chet Donnelly 07-07-2013 07:34 PM

I think they do. Tanev is too good to just let go.

CanucksSayEh 07-07-2013 07:35 PM

I will personally hop on a plane to the city of whichever team does this and backhand slap the GM across the face.

Hockeygirl95* 07-07-2013 07:36 PM

One of the more overrated d-men in the league. Canucks fans prop him up because they lack solid young players, (see Corrado)

Haha, as Canucks fans, I think we need to be wary of vindictive GMs and our RFAs. Calgary already made a big move like this and Gillis has done it before, too.

This situation could end up being like the one with Niklas Hjarlmarsson.

How about we don't bring attention to this guy?

Do you watch Tanev? He plays with a ton of confidence and rarely gets shaken. On a team with some very inconsistent and wildcard d-men (see Edler, Bieksa, previously Ballard), he stabilizes any pairing. He has some underrated playmaking ability as well, and all of his points have come at even-strength or in short-handed situations.

Nash 07-07-2013 07:42 PM

Love Tanev and think he is a solid steady D destined for a top 4 role, but his lack of offense probably means no one would offer sheet him...at least in the range you are suggesting. There are some other guys named Pietrangelo, Bogosian, McDonagh and Alzner, just to name a few that would be offer sheeted way before Tanev is looked at.

That is blasphemous, Tanev is a gangster whom flows ice cold concrete through his veins.

I suspect it's why he hired an agent so late in the game. He probably started hearing some whispers of big dollars from other clubs as July 1st approached and suddenly needed some more advice.

agree, a young defensemen who very rarely makes a mistake in his own zone. No one would want him.

SLarmer28* 07-07-2013 07:43 PM

Jay Feaster's the name, attempted offersheets are my game.

Virtanen2Horvat 07-07-2013 07:43 PM

I swear if Mike Gillis lets Tanev go I am gonna go insane.

Bourne Endeavor 07-07-2013 07:44 PM

We likely aren't able to match any offer sheet north of $2.5M, but I doubt anyone does. Offer sheets are just not the boogeyman people are this forum like to believe they are.

BoHorvatFan 07-07-2013 07:45 PM

I don't know how people can say things like, ''he's a good top 4'' and ''he can carry a pairing'' when he played bottom pairing sheltered minutes all season. He was over 4 minutes per game behind our top 4 guys and wasn't even close in quality of competition.

He's also very soft, has no shot, so yeah he's alright and pretty solid in the role he's been given but lets not go crazy here. Maybe he'll turn into a less offensive version of Hamhuis, that's what I'm hoping but he'll have to start playing against MUCH better players instead of taking on the 3/4 lines.

The Chicago Blackhawks survived the Niklas Hjalmarsson offersheet. But thanks for asking.

Well if it's all that much north of there we'd be getting at least a 1st back, and if it's from Calgary or Colorado that could mean even better things. But I'm sure there is some general interest in Tanev around the league. Let's hope we can keep him for cheap with term!

You've clearly never seen Tanev play before.

Infinite Jest 07-07-2013 07:48 PM

Why offersheet Tanev when there are so many better RFAs out there?

StringerBell 07-07-2013 07:49 PM

I agree Tanev is a bit overrated. Right now he's just a bottom pairing defenseman with great poise and hockey IQ. I can't see anyone offersheeting him.

CanucksSayEh 07-07-2013 07:51 PM

Tanev is not soft. He never shy's away from fore checkers, he will stand in front of a train if it means making the right pass up the ice. Rarely does he lose puck battles vs players of any size. He has the frame to add on weight as he matures, makes good, safe plays in the O zone and is improving his shot (slowly).

Tanev stands tall to pressure, where as someone like Bieksa can't get out of the way fast enough, regardless of if it means coughing up the puck to closest man in a different jersey. Great young D-man, will **** a chicken if Gillis lets go of him.

Pretty much this.

Jacob 07-07-2013 07:52 PM

Tanev is nothing special.

Virtanen2Horvat 07-07-2013 07:53 PM

This is what I have to say about Tanev. He is a young defenseman with a good hockey IQ, he can move the puck in his own zone with almost no mistakes. He can score but not at the rate that it is like a offensive defenseman and he is very good defensive. He can also play the 2nd pair I have seen him with Edler and they played pretty well, same with Corrado.
