You're overvaluing Matthias here and undervaluing Tanev. People take draft status way too seriously...if Tanev was a 1st rounder people would be begging for him. Let the kid continue to prove his worth before kicking him to the curb.
I'm not undervalueing Tanev. Nowhere did I say I wanted to trade him straight up for Matthias.
I would prefer to package him with other assets to get a top6 forward.
But Matthias is a good young 3C with size. Those come at a cost. You are definitely undervalueing him.
The Canucks needs up front outweigh the necessity of keeping Tanev, especially when there is a capable replacement in the AHL.
And Tanev is going to command a big raise this summer, so if they can move him for a valuable piece in advance, they should look into it.
Not sure why you're taking his inclusion in trade proposals so personally, or as a slight on him.
He's one of the only valuable assets that can be used to address the Canucks weaknesses up front, so he'll likely continue to be in most Canucks proposals.
