Typical Canucks response tho
Right, because how he played two years ago is far more important than how he played one year ago.
Ballard played well last year. But that doesn't matter because it doesn't suit your uninformed opinion. "Typical oilers response".
I can see Tanev playing 10+ seasons in the NHL. His shot is quite weak and he doesn't take chances on offense, so I'm not sure how much upside there is, but his hockey sense is extremely good.
I see his upside as a Hamhuis-lite. Solid defense and potential to stabilize a more risk-taking player, but providing much less offense.
