For anyone who's actually WATCHED Tanev in the AHL, how ready does he look, REALLY? I've heard good things.

Based on his track record you have to figure Gillis will dig himself out of his own mess. Be interesting to see how things shake down after the deadline.
This is ridiculous, considering that Gillis has made it clear that this would be happening, and that he has as much faith in Tanev as he does Alberts, Rome, or Sulzer.

This isn't so much calling up an AHLer as it is bringing him back after a conditioning/development stint.
