It's not there with Tanev.

We know Subban didn't sign one, and we know that he is a much better player at this point than Tanev.

Are teams really going to overpay for a guy who really hasn't established himself as a player who can handle big minutes against good competition.

I definitely don't see it as being realistic.
it's just instinct i have about the kind of player he is now and his upside potential. the kid is a gem. i don't factor in his point production at all. i could care less if he has zero points, his hockey sense is off the charts.

i totally agree with this article
