Can't say I've heard of him. I look forward to.. well anyone's insight.

Tough to go wrong with adding prospect depth. Especially on D.

Recent article about him:

Quote:
A deeper look inside this RIT team reveals its own best-kept secret. Freshman defenseman Chris Tanev logs a lot of ice time and plays on the top defense pairing for RIT with All-American candidate Dan Ringwald. We spoke with Tanev about the excitement surrounding the Tigers, his transition to college hockey and other aspects about RIT.

Seems like a move to acquire some new blood for the defense.

Tanev listed at 21 years old, 6'2", 185 lbs, shoots right, lots of upside.

One of the craziest things i've seen- RIT had 6 D-men in their top 8 scorers!

Yeah, 3 of their top 4. That is nuts...

He was the youngest guy on the team, by 2,3 or even 4 years, and still finished 4th in team scoring, as a d-man to boot.

I read elsewhere he stopped playing hockey for 3 years, thinking he was done because of his short stature.

Not sure if that is true, but if so, he could be a good guy to roll the dice on.

Good numbers but he did in a pretty weak division. RIT mostly got destroyed whenever they played a decent team.

Not much risk here though and he's young enough that there's probably some upside.

He's a Zep-head. I like him already. Hopefully he can play, too.

Doesn't seem like a bad FA signing.

Meh. Future useful player or Daniel Rahimi v2.0? Oh well. Can't go wrong adding dmen.

Welcome, Chris Tanev. Please be at least moderately serviceable.

How close the Canucks to the contract limit once they sign their RFA's and fill their NHL roster?

Welcome, Chris Tanev. Please me at least moderately serviceable.
Difference being Rahimi could barely skate and had absolutely no offensive upside (never scored more than 3 goals or 8 points at any level in the past 6 years).

I'll take the D-depth any day. RH shot and late 89' born is a big bonus. It's like getting an extra mid round pick for just money (mid round picks that we are missing this year (2nd + 3rd)).

Guess that explains why he wasn't drafted.

doubt anyone has actually seen him play, but are we expecting him to be with the Moose next year? Manitoba's blueline might be getting a bit too crowded as far as rookie pro dmen go. can't see there being enough ice time to go around, assuming at least a couple AHL vets so the team can remain competitive.

Hopefully he's a smart kid if he's studying finance. I like intelligent defensive players, smarts can make up for lack of physical skills to some degree especially in D. Lack of D brains can kill a team: Bieksa & stupid plays come to mind.

If he's a late bloomer physically might just be a steal, at least we are getting back our trade picks by stealth.

If Mike Funk gets over PCS he could be in the mix as well.

Anyone else getting the feeling of succession and progression planning? Gillis seems to get loading up on D that should make the team around the time Salo and (hopefully the new D we get this year) are at the ends of their contracts. If just 2 of the many young D make the team in the next 1-3 years we are looking good, 2 FA + Edler+Ehrhoff+2 newbies in 3 years time, with another 1-2 more coming through after that it looks good.

Seems like a plan...from Nucks management.
plan+nucks=twilight zone.

Capgeek has us at 41 players for next season and 10 of those are RFA's.

Our depth chart on defence as of right now looks something like this (including RFA's):

1.Ehrhoff
2.Edler
3.Salo
4.Bieksa
5.SOB
6.Alberts
7.Baumgartner

8.O'Berg
9.Tanev
10.Connauton
11.Sauve
12.Ellington
13.Zimmerman
14.Funk

SOB, Funk and Zimmerman are RFA's. Funk unlikely will get a contract and it wouldn't surprise me if Zimmerman doesn't either.

We've also reportedly signed Lee Sweatt but nothing is official yet.

So realistically we could see something like this for the Moose next season on defence:

Connauton-Baumgartner
Sauve-Sweatt
O'Berg-Tanav
Ellington
