I cannot see him getting any top 4 time anytime soon, unless the Canucks trade someone or someone is injured
Tanev projects VERY similarly to Kevin Klein of Nashville, who had all the same questions when he first came into the league, with the exception of an effective point shot. As long as Tanev continues to mature physically while playing with that exceptional poise he exhibits on the ice I don't see why he can't be just as effective as Klein when he reaches his prime.
