He's also very soft, has no shot, so yeah he's alright and pretty solid in the role he's been given but lets not go crazy here. Maybe he'll turn into a less offensive version of Hamhuis, that's what I'm hoping but he'll have to start playing against MUCH better players instead of taking on the 3/4 lines.
This. No team's going to offersheet a bottom pairing defenseman who has shown no offensive flash for $3m per when guys like Cowen, Pietrangelo, Stepan, etc are still out there. I like Tanev and I think he has upside but Canucks fans are definitely overrating him.
