But yeah, Tanev is a guy that Canucks have zero reason to move.
No interest in a draft pick or prospect for him since we're trying to win now, and Tanev is still pretty young.
suggesting that would be the price is silly in itself. So yes, I re-read the post and while he says he doubts it would happen--that would be his asking price. Based upon why?

It is like oiler fans saying that MPS gets you Steven Stamkos or Giroux of the flyers

Tanev and Ballard are the 5-6 d-combo on the nucks based upon average minutes played this season so far (and last)

Canucks should be 4-0 to start the season

2 games against the Ducks
1 against the lowly oilers and flames

It is not like the Canucks have played any good teams yet or against players that would push the D pretty far--With LA and SJ on back to back nights that will be the first challange for the pairing this year
