If Aarome can get a $1.5 million contract for 3 years, Chris Tanev will definitely get more. Add to the fact that he's one of the few RD on the team, the Canucks will likely want to lock him up for a good mid-length deal.

3 years for $5-7 million is my best guess.
I doubt it. Being a young, RFA defensive defenseman looking towards his 2nd contract he's not the type of player that warrants a lot of money. Heading into last season Karl Alzner got a 2 year deal at $1.285 per year. I imagine Tanev will be close to that.
