Tanev is definitely NOT better than Liles
Debatable, Tanev is already capable of top 4 minutes along side top NHL defensemen in key situations and doesn't miss a beat.

I would never trade Tanev for Liles myself, cause I think Tanev will be better than Liles by the end of this season.

What exactly is Tanev?
On our roster?

A 3rd pairing defensemen perfectly capable (Much more capable than Franson) of top 4 minutes.

On your roster he would probably be a top 4 defensemen, maybe he wouldn't start there but with his play and with the way some of your other guys play he would earn his way there.

I honestly doubt it, part of the reason no one here wants Franson for Tanev is because of Fransons bad defensive game.

Put Tanev on the Leafs and I think he earns his way into a top 4 role like Gardiner did as I mentioned above (Not saying he is as good as Gardiner so don't take that the wrong way)

Put Franson on the Canucks and I think he plays like Ballard did in 10/11 for us. Inconsistent with defensive Errors (Even though his "poor play" was greatly overblown and over disected IMO) But still.

Great for us, Terrible for them. Alberts is a solid 6/7 but Franson is better than that, he just struggled and is younger and more mobile.

Franson could get something better IMO.

Well put. I concur.
