I effing love this kid. I said he was the 2nd or 3rd best defensive d-man in either game 4 or 5 of the Sharks series and wondered why he didn't play (with Ballard) for last game (wanted AV to dress 7d that game).

Tanev > than everyone of our defenders when it comes to defensive play who's not named Hamhuis. He showed that again tonight. He had 1 or 2 minor blunders tonight (the fewest among our d-man), but was excellent the whole game.

He got Thomas challenging him and made a great pass to Glass that would've been a guaranteed goal for every Canuck on the roster, except Glass. Can't believe that plug fanned on a wide open net from a great pass.

Anyway, I do not want Tanev to be taken off the lineup again for the remainder of the playoffs even if Hamhuis is healthy. I prefer 7d or take Ehrhoff off if we must (assuming that Hamhuis gets back in). The kid is just too good right now.
