Tanev stands tall to pressure, where as someone like Bieksa can't get out of the way fast enough, regardless of if it means coughing up the puck to closest man in a different jersey. Great young D-man, will **** a chicken if Gillis lets go of him.
I like Tanev as much as the next guy, but you'll do what with a chicken?!?
